Patient Stories: Daniel L. Knows Prostate Artery Embolization Changed His Life
Daniel L. shares in his own words how prostate artery embolization changed his life.
I have been suffering from the symptoms of my enlarged prostate for years. These include, urgency, frequency and sometimes the inability to urinate at all. I went to my urologist, and he gave me several options, but they just did not seem right for me. I had to do something.
I am an umpire and would actually dehydrate myself, because I was scared of being out on a baseball field and not near a restroom. I did a ton of research on my own and found RIA Endovascular on the Internet. I specifically read a blog post by Dr. Greg Martin about his perspective when it comes to prostate artery embolization.
I was very scared to have anything done, because I did not want incontinence or any sexual side effects to be a burden on my lifestyle. I immediately noticed that this procedure had fewer risks than other options I had researched. I’m so glad I went with prostate artery embolization. I’ve seen very positive results, and it’s only been one month. Dr. Martin says I will continue to see improvement over the next few months. I’m glad that I took a chance. It has changed my life already.
I would highly recommend anyone with an enlarged prostate to go this route. You absolutely missed the boat if you do not know about this procedure. I have felt zero side effects over the last month. The best way to describe Dr. Martin is delightful, down to earth, easy to talk to and good at what he does. He has obvious skills and is on his game. I feel like he listened to me and answered questions appropriately and patiently. For me, prostate artery embolization is a logical solution compared to other procedures. I’m glad I found RIA Endovascular and Dr. Martin.
