Question: I went through REZUM process (steam application on prostate to open urethra passage, I think) just over two weeks ago. I am having great pain or burning sensation while urinating. I am already out of long term catheter. I am using disposable ones twice a day, before bed and at mid-night.
The Rezum treatment for BPH, or an enlarged prostate, is the first of its kind. Using water vapor therapy, this minimally invasive procedure has shown to significantly reduce the symptoms of BPH. In late 2015, the FDA approved Rezum as a treatment for BPH.
Jul 07, 2016 · A week ago yesterday I had the relatively new rezum prostate procedure and was put on the Foley catheter. It was removed yesterday and urine flow was low. Dr attributed this to not drinking enough fluids (I thought I was) and put me back on the foley.

The method for treating an enlarged prostate is minimally invasive. It is performed by going up through the urethra and using an instrument that turns water into steam. The steam delivery lasts only seconds. The procedure is designed to be done in a doctor’s office. You will not need general anesthesia. You will receive only local anesthesia.
This is a minor procedure that takes about 15 minutes. It can be done with local anaesthetic although usually performed with some sedation or general anaesthesia. A cystoscopy at the same time confirms correct positioning in the bladder. What are the risks of having a suprapubic catheter placed? It is possible to get bleeding from the site.
Rezum also appears to be a safe and effective treatment in small RCTs comparing performance with TURP. Memokath prostatic stents do not appear to have treatment durability. Further studies would be warranted to determine whether Allium prostatic stents are safe effective treatments for LUTS-BPO.
