Option of Urolift treatment

User

Hi. I have been to see urologist today as am in acute retention after 2 failed visits to ambulatory ward.  He says that after MRI results they need to check pelvic lymph nodes which show signs of swelling , via CT scan, with referral to haematologist.  I asked about Turps operation but he thought prostate was too enlarged and might not be successful.  I asked about other laser  alternatives but was told they did not have facilities, so I asked about urolift  , which he thought might be an option.   I am only 65 and don’t relish the prospect of having a catheter in for thr the rest of my life.  Has any else had experience of this procedure?
