My doctor has recommended a procedure called Transurethral Microwave Thermotherapy. I am seeking information about the risks. I also would like to know that if I choose to have it performed, what will result? Would there be long term pain? Would I need this procedure repeated? Is this a radical alternative to taking medications, prescribed or over the counter such as saw palmetto extract? If I decide against, does it increase the chance of more problems in older life and need surgery?
