Any Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) herbs experience for enlarged prostate, blocked bladder?

Posted , 1 user is following.

My first self-cathing ended in a bloody disaster.  I don't see an "exit" door.  My uro said my prostate is only 50ml, and no nodules (no cancer, she said).

I'm back on the Foley with a bag.

Right now, I'm boiling my third bag of herbs from a Chinese pharmacy, prescribed by a TCM doctor.  He said I will be "good" in days.  However, how do I know that I'm "good" without having to risk removing the Foley (too much pain for me.)  Catch-22?

I am usually a very positive person and great problem solver.  But, I need your help.

Blessings and thanks.
