I put CHF, still not sure why it is wrong over BPH, but my reasoning is that BPH causes obstructive urine flow --> Hydronephrosis and once the urine has been made it can't be redone and is like filling up a damn with water. Straight Stasis. vs CHF there is protective mechanisms in place for a while until frank CKD.
