Urinary Disorders

Microwave Procedure and Avodart

05/11/2009

Question:

I had the mircowave procedure 4 weeks ago. I seem to urinate better when I take Avodart, but I would like to discontinue it. I originally had the procedure because Avodart alone was not helping. Should I stop taking the Avodart now? When I do stop it for a few days, my urinarty difficulties increase.

Answer:

I would discuss this with your physician. It may be reasonable to experiment stopping the Avodart as you get farther out from the surgery.
