    APPLE? Mine was GRAPEFRUIT size

    Unknown to Urologists and Duke Univ. and
    at another in Eastern N.C. where I had PVP
    in 08/03, my gland was over 300cc with a
    hidden central lobe. The Urologist discovered this as he began a 2 1/2 hour procedure.
    He used a huge amount of LUMES and his arms
    got tired as he vaporized much of the gland
    and made a nice channel.
    After this procedure I still had a 106cc
    gland. Todate, I am quite satisfied with
    results. I can now sleep for over six hours.
    Now, have a local Urologist here in Western N.C. Had one severe bleeding spell in 09 of 04
    and he looked into my gland only to find a lot of rough looking tissue from my PVP. He said that should have been expected due to the complexity of the PVP procedure (like using a blow torch to melt a glacier). He said I may have another bleeding spell as tissue breaks away - I did in 05 of 05.
    I believe the lesson here is that the practicioner determines the results.
    I told both Urologists that I thought I would be the first in North Carolina to have a second PVP in about year 2008!
