My big worry-panic trip yesterday to the ER is in other threads.
Today, I was peeing minimally after 10am, and by 3pm, I was in full panic mode. The Emergency Dept waiting room was full. If I hadn't bled badly from self-cathing, I would have tried CIC again. My blood pressure at the ER was 178/100-something, pulse rate over 100 bpm.
While in the waiting area for maybe 1.5 hours, I managed to pee twice, because i chugged several cups of liquid just before heading out. And, I also drank 1/2 glass of water at the waiting room, from a phoned-in advice by a friend.
You see, I changed my liquid-intake habits, and was very recently following the "don't drink unless your body demands water" advice from the Healthy Prostate. (Which is contrary to mainstream.)
Guess what? Take a look at the hospital's bladder scanner photo, approximately 40 minutes after I started sipping water there, and two void's of maybe 75 ml's each.
Conclusion: My panics were caused by my not owning my own bladder ultrasound device.
