I need BPH surgery and have been researching TURP and Urolift procedures. I’d prefer to have the Urolift since it’s less drastic, but I’m not sure if it’s a long-term solution. It’s only been available since 2013. TURP is considered the gold standard procedure, but it has several potential nasty side-effects.
If anyone had either procedure and willing to share their experience or advice, please leave a comment.

I was told you will still be able to have sex and to have an orgasm. What they did not say was that there is no Pop! because the way out is sealed. It makes sex a very different experience. This may or may not matter to you but there are plenty of online forums with bummed out males who were not clear that sex is not the same after TURP. On the plus side
I’ve been reading about this side-effect but I don’t know if it matters to me if everything else felt and acted normal. However, that is one of the selling points of the Urolift procedure, but so far I’ve not met anyone who went through route.
On the plus side, you pee like a teenager again
I’d be overjoyed to pee like a teenager again, especially if it also meant I didn’t have to get up in the middle of the night countless times.
About two hours before I go to bed, I eat a light snack and then take two ibuprofen tablets (I prefer Motrin). I only have one bathroom break using this method. Your mileage might vary.
Greatt read thank you
