Does surgery to relieve obstruction from benign prostate enlargement (BPE) improve metabolic risk profile (MRP)?

Frequent and urgent urination secondary to obstruction from prostate enlargement may reduce physical activity and adherence to diuretics, thereby increasing metabolic risk profile. This study will identify a prospective subcohort of men with incident surgery to relieve bladder outlet obstruction (BOO). We hypothesize relief of LUTS will decrease need to urinate, increase level of physical activity, and reduce MRP. Patient perceived surgical outcome will serve as a proxy for success.
