How to Know If You Need Prostate Treatment

How’s your urinary function? Are you experiencing problems or have you been diagnosed with an enlarge prostate or BPH? Men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) experience problems like frequent trips to the bathroom and weak urinary flow. They may feel that they cannot fully empty their bladder, and they may wake up many times during the night to urinate, which can affect sleep and overall health.

This condition is common among men, so if you have any of these issues, you are not alone. You may benefit from enlarged prostate treatment. You can take medications to help, but in many cases, a procedure such as GreenLight™ Laser Treatment is the best way to go for fast relief of symptoms and long-lasting results. Read on to learn more!

Using GreenLight™ PVP Lasers to Treat Enlarged Prostate

The GreenLight™ PVP laser is designed especially to help with medical conditions such as enlarged prostate. It enables your surgeon to do a minimally-invasive treatment that will reduce the size of your prostate and thus reduce the pressure on your urethra so that your urinary symptoms go away.

How a GreenLight™ PVP Laser Vaporization Procedure Works

GreenLight™ PVP Laser Vaporization Procedure

First, the patient is given anesthesia and sedation. Then, the surgeon inserts a tiny camera called a cystoscope into the urinary passage, enabling them to see the prostate. Once the prostate is in view, the surgeon can run an even-tinier laser fiber through the cystoscope and direct laser energy onto the prostate, where the laser light affects the hemoglobin in the prostate cells so that the surgeon can remove excess prostate tissue.

As the surgeon applies the laser light to the prostate, the prostate cells absorb the light and are vaporized. Thanks to the tiny camera, the surgeon can see exactly what they are doing and can tell when the prostate is reduced to the point that it no longer restricts the urethra. The laser is highly focused, penetrates the tissue only .8mm, and is very safe when used by a medical professional.

The Benefits of Laser Treatment

In the past, doctors usually treated enlarged prostate with surgery. But there are so many benefits to using GreenLight™ Laser Therapy instead.

  • Unlike traditional, surgical treatments for enlarged prostate, laser PVP requires no cutting and causes very little bleeding.
  • It is very safe for a wide range of patients, even high-risk patients who are elderly or who have diabetes, heart disease, and other medical problems.
  • Patients are discharged from the clinic within 24 hours of the procedure, so you can go back to your daily life quickly.
  • The procedure itself only takes about an hour.
  • Rapid relief is one of the biggest benefits of this procedure. In most cases, the procedure works so quickly that you’ll be able to urinate comfortably with good urinary flow within 2 days of the surgery.
  • Laser PVP is not known to cause incontinence (urinary problems), impotence, or sexual dysfunction. Therefore, you should be able to urinate normally and return to your normal sexual activities with no issues once fully healed.
  • Complications are rare, but they can occur. However, in most cases they are mild and quick to resolve.

Recovering from GreenLight™ Laser Treatment

Recovering from a GreenLight™ PVP laser procedure is usually a quick process. The patient is discharged the morning after the surgery. The catheter is usually removed two days after the treatment, although some patients will need to be catheterized for a bit longer, especially if their condition was severe.

You may experience a few symptoms after the treatment, such as a mild burning sensation while urinating and a small amount of blood in the urine. In addition, you may have to urinate more often and you may feel a sudden urge to urinate. Some patients will experience retrograde ejaculation, in which semen travels backwards into the bladder during ejaculation.

You may notice symptoms for a week or two after your treatment. Be sure to inform your doctor if you think you’re having complications like a UTI or any other issues. Provided that you don’t have complications, your urethra will adjust to the changes in the days after the treatment and you’ll start feeling normal again. Most patients see a dramatic improvement in urine flow within just a few days. In patients with multiple health issues, it may take a bit longer.

In about three days, you should be able to return to the majority of your normal daily activities. You should still avoid heavy exercise and lifting large objects for about two weeks. You should also refrain from using tools or machinery that vibrate for at least two weeks. If you return to these activities too soon, you may experience pain and/or bleeding.

In about a month, you should be healed enough to resume sexual activity comfortably if you so desire. While you may notice changes with your ejaculation, these changes will not affect your sexual pleasure or ability to orgasm. It’s very important that you take things slow and understand that it may take some time for everything to get back to normal.
