Well I have had a right game trying to find out how much and if a green light laser treatment can be performed on me with the out come being that a package price for it is in the ball park of £7500!!!! The consultation is extra , another £200 with no realistic chance of it being done for at least 6-8 weeks.
Looks like I am stuck with a TURP as my consultant said, through his secretary, that he did not recommend it in my circumstance ??? Whatever that meant!
The only good points from all this is that he will get me on his list sooner rather than later and I have just saved myself a lot of money that I never had in the first place. I was fortunate to have had a relation willing to lend it to me though.
I think that the laser treatment might only be suitable for folk that have an enlarged prostate and not going through cancer treatment.
Thanks to Tony anyway for suggesting that route but at least I have asked the questions and found out the price for anyone else thinking of it. I am disappointed because I really thought it would be a quicker for me to get the end product with a lot less discomfort, blood loss,time off work and no catheter but hey ho it was not meant to be.
