Final October I mentioned 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 instances 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 solution 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.
So I had that finished this morning. There was little or no discomfort in the course of the fast process and my Doc stated it went effectively, the clips have been precisely positioned and had achieved opening.
So now I am going by 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 effectively and might use a few very straightforward 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 just a few days or a few weeks.
After that, I’m trying ahead to significantly better sleep at night time with minimal interruptions.
