Did you get the Prostate Artery Embolization / PAE surgery?
I think I saw your pic on Dr Pisco's website. Did you get the surgery? If so, what are the results?
Yes I did.
My prostate symptoms have been frequency triggered by sensitivities to different foods. Most of the time I had been able to manage it quite well, but if I ate the wrong food my frequency of urination would go way up.
So I decided to check out the procedure.
Let's be clear: this is NOT surgery. Prostate surgeries have many possible side effects that are not pleasant.
Prostate Artery Embolization / PAE is a procedure that is non-surgical and has minimal if only temporary side effects, some of which can be positive. In some cases sexual function improves! That is just the opposite of what happens with prostate surgeries like the TURP or laser ones.
Results of my Prostate Artery Embolization: please note that the procedure has an 85-90% success rate. That means 2 things:
1. positive results for most men but 1 out of 10 will not.
2. expectation level: do not assume you will go back to peeing like a 20 year old! If your symptoms reduce by 25-40% would you like that? I think that is a more reasonable assumption.
So after 1 month, at night I go less often and the good news is more volume. And during the day, I find the same change. And my ejaculate volume is
also up! A nice bonus don't you think?
The biggest issue for me is the food sensitivity, and that has improved. I still must be careful to eat really healthy foods but that is not the end of the world because eating well is so important for long term health.
Conclusion for someone else considering the Prostate Artery Embolization procedure: worth a try. Much more upside potential than negatives. If it doesn't work for you, you are only out money (while that is important, it is less of a risk than the alternatives) and you could still do a prostate surgery.
Keep your expectations reasonable and you just may find success. Be sure you qualify by answering Dr Pisco's questionaire first.
