If it is giving good relief, rapilif d can be taken long term. Over months to years, it may reduce the size of prostate also. But it is important to meet your urologist, every 3-6 months for checkup. If no relief with medicines, surgery can be thought of. For very large prostate and patients on anti platelets laser prostatectomy (holep) is better, otherwise turp is a time tested technique for not so large prostates. Please discuss treatment options and side effects with your treating urologist before deciding upon surgery.
