Thank You Geekysquid

  For all this valuable info, I will certainly read these links and try some of the things you mention ,I have heard of all these things to try  just never thought I'd be trying them, and I agree with you to look and study all the alternatives to surgery  and yes  surgery will be my last resort.

Thanks my new Friend

Buck I never knew that it was removed through the penis...just thinking about that make me shudder. Here is a link to the American Cancer Society which discusses the surgery https://www.cancer.org/can

I've had BPH for years and like most, I waited until it was intolerable ( can't go at all).  I've tried Terazosin, Finasteride to no avail.  I've had two PAE's (prostatic artery embolization), not much help at all. Finally I had Greenlight Photovaporization procedure at Mayo in Rochester.  That did the trick, but came with some permanent side effects.  I have no regrets.

Don't wait until you can't go at all.  That will require a trip to the emergency room.

Sadly, you have to do something.  It ain't going away.

Good luck.

@rockerson I have voiding issues, bph and ed. nocturia is a problem and I use pads, like 52 a week usage.

If you don't mind, what are the permanent side effects. If you don't feel comfortable posting it in public would you DM me with the info?

YES , rockerson can you let us know about the side effects?

I am not that familiar with the ''Greenlight Photovaporization procedure ''  other than it maybe a radation type of electro-heating to open or design a ''canal'' passage through the prostate.? (JMO)

which if that is this type of procedure?  I think I would opt to the removal of the prostate all together  once and for all. To hopefully avoid the side effects  but with all surgical procedure there's no guarantees. 

But I do want to try the supplements first, but so for they are 100's to choose from  breaking it down I think Geeky is correct in trying the Saw Palmetto and cranberry supplements, and pumpkin seed supplements,  but I just can't afford to be trying all these supplements if they are not going to do the job .

So for I been diagnose with the BHP (Sowllen Prostate )   The Dr had me on the Finastride too but my Dr discontinue it and prescribe the prozosinI but having problems with it.  I take PTSD medications so I am restricted...per Dr's

I  use the pads too &  about 4 or 5 times  during the night to pee but I do have a fairly good stream and never have a problem getting it started  but my stream is not as strong as it once was  about half I would say,  I just can't tell when I am finished   reason I use the pads.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
