Your surgeon may recommend surgery to help a man who is not responding to medication. This procedure is usually done after other treatment options have been tried and the person has been unsuccessful. This is often an outpatient procedure and patients can go home the day after the procedure.
If you have an underlying medical condition, such as diabetes or heart disease, you should also talk to your doctor about your treatment options. You can get a referral to a urologist or see your GP for tests and other investigations that can help identify your problem.
