Bladder neck constriction

I am a 41 yr old Male.

I am supposed to have surgery this week for a tight bladder neck. I have had the issue for 7 years and my bladder is getting weaker.
I am very scared and not sure if it is the right decision. I have been on flowmax and it helps some. I am on two pills totaling .80.
I am 41 years old and had a qmax score of 6 without any meds and 12 with meds. The meds cause some side effects like eczema and some dizzyness, maybe even some back and side pain.

If anyone has an experience with having a BNI at 5 and 7 could you please share with me your experience>?
My BIGGEST fear is incontinence. I am 41 have two kids and a beautiful wife.

Did you get and form of Incontinence?
Did you get the dreaded Retro?
How long was your recovery time?
Would you share with me your outcome and if any complications?
Did you get the results you were looking for?
Would you do it again knowing what you know now?

Am I jumping the gun having this surgery or am I scared of things that are very unlikely?

I see some people have good flow after the surgery but then find out a few weeks later their slow flow comes back. Thank you for anything you can share.

Thank you,
Joel P

Hi Joel,
I had BNI at 5 and 7. I did not have any incontinence problems. However, I had a lot of bleeding after a bowel movement a couple of days later. Maybe because the rectum is at 6 o'clock. I had to go to the ER to clear the obstruction due to the blood clots.
After this issue I was urinating great. I am at 5 weeks and I starter to see the flow slow. I am getting worried and thinking what I should do next.


I know it’s been a couple years since you all last posted here. I just joined and came across your comment. I am 43 years old, male and also have a bladder neck obstruction and was advised by the urologist to get a BNI, but I have held off.
My sleep has been bad for about 3 years. I’ve tried a similar medication to flomax, called alfuzosin and also silodosin, but side effects of congested nose are what bothers me the most so I stopped taking it. I probably didn’t give it long enough.
Wondering if you got your surgery and if so did it help? Would you recommend sticking to the medication to see if it helps more?
