Ive had BPH for at least 15yrs and in the last 3wks had to have a catheter inserted. Ive had lots of tests at the Urology Dept and yesterday had a cystometrogram which was inconclusive. I have been told my prostates IS enlarged but the NHS seems very reluctant to refer me for a TURP or similar op! Why are they reluctant? I am thinking of spending my last savings on going private. Any advice welcome.
Do you have regular PSA tests? If so, does your PSA level stay consistent? Have you ever had tests to rule out prostate cancer?
I have never been overweight and was playing 2hrs badminton and doing Yoga 3 wks ago until I had the catheter put in. I am 72 and the doc once said I had the heart of an athelete. No sign of prostate cancer. I cant understand why my Urology team are reluctant to send me for a Turp op!
