Final October I talked about I’d had a urinary tract an infection that took a stout spherical of antibiotics to kick. My urologist suspected benign prostate hyperplasia, a situation the place the prostate is proscribing the ureter, and was involved this put me in danger for future UTIs. It’s additionally type of a nuisance as a result of it usually makes me get up a number of occasions per evening to pee. He confirmed it a few months in the past with a cystoscopy.
This may be handled with a drugs referred to as Flomax (generic Tamsulosin) however that wasn’t too efficient for me. A straightforward option to appropriate the issue is to put in some tiny clips that pull again the prostate. It’s a very minimally invasive process referred to as Urolift.
So I had that executed this morning. There was little or no discomfort throughout the fast process and my Doc mentioned it went nicely, the clips have been precisely positioned and had achieved an excellent opening.
So now I’m going by means of a few weeks of restoration from that. No bicycling or different strenuous train for the interim. However that’s okay, I’d constructed up my health fairly nicely and might use a few very simple weeks. There’s little or no ache, simply discomfort just like the fixed feeling of needing to go. This might clear up in as little as a number of days or a few weeks.
After that, I’m wanting ahead to a lot better sleep at evening with minimal interruptions.
