Should I stop taking Flomax?

I'm 44 and was diagnosed with BPH at 41.  You don't think much about peeing except when you can't anymore.  :-).  I've been on one Flomax and one Avodart once daily since then.  My urologist said that I can stop taking the Flomax if I want because it gets back in the blood stream at theraputic levels quickly.  He didn't order me to stop.  It was just a recomendation.  I really am scared to stop because with these have been working very well for me.  With my insurance, both have been pretty cheap for a three months supply.  Now that Flomax is generic, it will be even cheaper.  What do you think?  Should I try to live without ift and hope my urination problems don't reappear?  I don't ever want to go through that again.
