Effectiveness

As men get older, the prostate can enlarge and cause several issues ranging from acute to severe. This issue is called BPH or benign prostatic hyperplasia. Although not directly the cause of prostate cancer, an enlarged prostate greatly increases a man’s risk of cancer. Most symptoms are typically acute but can affect the quality of living in a man’s life. Over 70 percent of men over 60 suffer from some form of an enlarged prostate and deal with the frustrating and uncomfortable symptoms daily like issues urinating.

What is Urolift?

As the prostate enlarges, it presses against the urethra or even blocking it entirely. This affects a man’s life immensely and basically tethers him to the bathroom. Pressure on the urethra can cause the following symptoms

  • Urge incontinence – The sudden urge to urinate is uncomfortable and frustrating when your bladder is empty or you have difficulty starting to urinate. At times, only a dribble or noting is produced after hours in the bathroom.
  • Urinary retention – Not being able to urinate is extremely uncomfortable and causes anxiety issues in some men.
  • Frequent urge – If you’re using the restroom several times a day, your life may feel under the control of your bladder.

Urolift is effective against BPH and can help free men from the being tethered to the restroom and allow them to live the life they want. A simple, minimally invasive operation, Urolift, lifts and holds the enlarged prostate away from the urethra. This allows for urine to pass freely without cutting, burning or damaging the prostate. This will remedy any urinary issues without damaging your sexual function, giving you back your life and what matters most.

Is Urolift for You?

Urolift is an effective treatment for a BPH but there are some cases where surgery may not be needed. Usually, a doctor will suggest Urolift after oral medications or more non-invasive treatments have been exhausted. If you’re suffering from an BPH and you’re considering Urolift, speak to your Atlanta doctor or specialist if it’s the best choice for you. Some other issues you may need to consider is your recovery time from the procedure which is usually a few weeks.

The best way to manage your device is by keeping a small diary cataloging your urges to urinate, whether or not you emptied your bladder and your flow. Is it a dribble? Did you have trouble starting? This will help the doctor or specialist to determine if Urolift is right for you. After the procedure, practice proper care techniques and instructions give to you by the doctor and keep the incision clean until healed. Keep in good contact with your urologist and nurses for the best results in recovery. At this point, you’ve probably researched Urolift side effects and benefits online and come to a conclusion about your next step.
