Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) Surgery Options
I had a Urolift procedure last February for my BPH symptoms and it was a total failure. The implants are still in position though. I am looking for a different procedure to alleviate my BPH problem and Rezum seems to be a good alternative. Can it be done considering my prior Urolift procedure. If not, what would be your recommendation.

Yup-Urolift Failed for me also. Also looking for an alternative. Glenn Larkin
The census here in MA is that green light (HoLEP) is the way to go. I'm not convinced. Not too many urologists here do Rezum. Rezum seems the best post-surgery if it can be done with implants already in place (from Urolift) and causing a procedure problem. Looking for anyone who has done that.
I'd also like to bring @scwhandyman into this discussion. He started a discussion about Rezum here:

Hey Glenn. Any progress to report?
Good YouTube vid about Rezum procedure
I had the holep procedure done in February in Jacksonville and am doing excellent. You guys need to talk to your urologist about it. I also have intermediate prostate cancer which I will have to deal with. BPH is non existent and I sleep all night without waking up every two hours.
Good news Joe and congrats. Did you first try Urolift?
No I didn’t. I wasn’t sure another procedure could be done. My first urologist at a different clinic wanted to do it. Also he did a TRUS biopsy and I developed an infection of the prostate. That’s when I started going to the Mayo Clinic. Best care anyone could give.
