When Will BPH Urinary Symptoms Improve?
Symptoms of BPH usually do not improve immediately after TUNA or TUMT; instead, they worsen for a few days and then slowly improve. In fact, you may notice no improvement in BPH symptoms for about two to eight weeks. This delay in BPH symptom relief occurs because it takes time for the body to absorb and discard the excess prostate tissue destroyed by the procedure. If TUNA or TUMT is effective, you will experience its full benefits within three to six months. However, BPH symptom relief is not always long lasting. After two years, about 20% of men need retreatment either with TUNA, TUMT, or TURP, and this rate increases to about 33% after five years. • For more Prostate Disorders articles, please visit the Prostate Disorders Topic Page Medical Disclaimer: This information is not intended to substitute for the advice of a physician.
