I am currently taking Flomax and had some side effects so the Dr switched me to Rapaflo. I do not like drugs and am wondering if I should have the surgery?
I started taking Rapaflo a few days ago because my bladder remains overactive from years of BPH, but I have taken Flomax, Avodart, and other drugs for BPH. They all helped, but had side effects. After many years, when I reached a frequency of urination at night of 5-8 times, I decided to have green light laser surgery, which with an experienced surgeon is very low risk for incontinence and impotence. It is done on an outpatient basis and really worked for me. That was about 4 years ago. I strongly recommend it if medicines aren't working for you. TURP is a high risk procedure that is only performed as a last resort. Stay away from it.
