Some Extra Tiny Prosthetic Components Put in At the moment – BionicOldGuy

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 limiting 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 typically makes me get up a number of occasions per night time to pee. He confirmed it a few months in the past with a cystoscopy.

This may be handled with a medication known as Flomax (generic Tamsulosin) however that wasn’t too efficient for me. A simple technique to appropriate the issue is to put in some tiny clips that pull again the prostate. It’s a very minimally invasive process known as Urolift.

This process took lower than quarter-hour. The clips are literally shot in place with a spring machine and self-deploy. There may be little or no ache through the process. For the adventurous, there’s a brief video of the process right here.

So I had that completed this morning. There was little or no discomfort through the fast process and my Doc mentioned it went nicely, the clips have been precisely positioned and had achieved a very good opening.

So now I am going by way 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 may be 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 trying ahead to significantly better sleep at night time with minimal interruptions.
