Paul S., 66, United Kingdom
UroLift System patient
Business owner Paul was forced to give up his hobbies and started to avoid leaving the house due to his enlarged prostate. Since his UroLift System treatment, he’s happier, calmer and says he feels 15 years younger.
“You don’t realize it at the time, but you are constantly embarrassed and harassed by the need to be near a toilet. I was always dying to go, and when I did go nothing much happened, and after a short space of time you’d need to go again. It dominates your life but you don’t realize it until afterwards.
I would describe my mood as agitated and stressed. I was forced to give up flying – my absolute passion in life – because it wasn’t safe. I had to get up two or three times a night – so it badly affected sleep – and this went on for more than three years.”
“I have had a new lease of life since my UroLift® procedure”
Paul began to take a drug called tamsulosin and was on that for three years – he says it was helping only a little bit. Then Paul met his local Consultant Urologist who recommended the UroLift procedure.
“Very soon afterwards, I felt so much better. I feel like I have had a new lease of life. I am on a new exercise regime and I am back to where I was when I was 50. I feel more interested in life, and have taken up golf as well – and play three times a week. Life is different, and I would recommend this to absolutely anybody.”
