Default Problems urinating - 09-10-2012, 12:42 PM


I underwent an appendix surgery 4 years back and since then, the flow of my urine has been decreasing. I got an ultrasound done (PVR) and there was a 144ml residual urine in bladder. The uroflometry also showed that the flow was weak. I started feeling that the urine passage is never empty and a few drops would come out once I have packed myself. Also I had to stand and wait for 30 secs to 3-4 mins before I started urinating. Also I feel there is mostly a foul smell coming from penis, due to the leaking of few drops.

A month back, when thought all this was too much and consulted a doctor. I was prescribed ALFOO 10mg, I saw some improvement with the medicine (say 20%), but the side effects were a lot, so the doctor has asked me to switch to RAPILIF 4mg. I have read that this new medicine has ejaculation sideeffects.

So here are my queries:
1- Should I switch over to the new medicine, knowing the side effects.
2- Are the side effects temporary or permanent.
3- I have stopped any medication for last 3 days and I see the situation is again deteriorating.
4- Is there a permanent solution to the problem or will I have to be on medication forever.

I hope that these problems get solved ASAP.

Urinary hesitancy affects people of all ages and occurs in both sexes.Urinary hesitancy usually comes on slowly over time.But urination problems may be a sign of more serious problems.
For fight this problem you need to use Urinary incontinence products.
