This is Dr. David
this depends on how large your prostate is, how bad your urinary symptoms are
and if you have tried conventional medications like proscar or avodart to shrink your prostate
medications like flomax and rapaflo and hytrin can help relax your bladder neck muscles to allow for easier urinary flow as well.
it doesn't sound like you have tried these yet.
