Going to see my doctor in about an hour. This is just a check up to see how the flowmax .8Mg dose is working. Well....its not :/ Just like the .4Mg it worked great after the first week through week 4 but started to fade after that. The only other option he gave me was to have a "procedure" where they go in & remove some of the obstruction with heat. I am not having anything done to me any time soon unless its life threatening after the hell I went through back in April. I really do not want to up the dose any more because the side effects get more & worst as the dose increases & after another 2 months & it fades out then what? Increase the dose even more? No thank you. Think I am just going to tell him that I would rather wear a diaper 24/7 than have to deal with meds & surgery. Hell, maybe I can talk him into getting me a script for padding XD
Back from doctors. Good news bad news. Good news is that I am on the max dose of flowmax. There is other meds out there I can try but my insurance dose not cover them. Bad news is if it continues to degrade I will need the Transurethral needle ablation (T.U.N.A.) procedure. I told the doctor that it was not happening & explained why & he said he did not blame me for not wanting to do it. So another 6 weeks on the .8Mg Flowmax for now.
Has anyone had the Transurethral needle ablation done & how did you fair with it?
