Hello
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have obstructive urinary symptoms due to Benign Eenlargement of Prostate(BEP).

The treatment options for enlarged prostate depend upon the degree of severity of symptoms and size of the prostate.

Since you are not getting relief after medical line of treatment it is advisable to go for surgical line of treatment which involves endoscopic resection of the prostate termed as Trans Urethral Resection of the Prostate.(TURP) .

This is gold standard method practised all over the world and offers permanent cure.
