PAE is an outpatient procedure: have it in the morning and leave that afternoon with a Band-Aid on the site; no staples, no stitches.
The procedure is painless, though we give you a sedative to help you relax.
Afterwards, most men report a burning sensation in their bladder and an increased urgency to urinate that lasts 7-10 days.
Within weeks the prostate will shrink so that urination is easier!
