Hello all,

I have a friend scheduled for a TURP procedure at the Cleveland clinic. He is trying to decide if his preference should be the LAZER TURP procedure or the conventional surgical procedure. He has read where there is only minimal blood loss with the LAZER procedure but has little knowledge of other advantages, disadvantages, risk and recovery time regarding these two different methods.

He is not suffering from prostate cancer but has extreme problems with urine retention.

I will happily furnish to him all replies to this posting.

Best wishes,

I sent you an email of Terry Herberts email address, he knows about Turp's.  He is part moderator/originator of he would know from other guys whom have posted it on the site or his research, is my good guess. Advise me if you cannot get in touch via that email.
