    Take this up with your Dr. who will possibly advise a visit to a Urologist. Symptoms are typical for enlarged Prostate.

    I've had BPH symptoms for years: getting up at night usually 3 times, frequency during the day, dribbling, Prior to visiting a urologist, I had an ultrsound on bladder, kidneys, and prostate and a PSA test and had been on Flomax (not very effective). Afte a DE and reviewing all the info, he concluded that my sleep issues and high fluid intake had a lot to do with my symptoms as well as bladder issues and bph. He said surgery probably wouldn't benefit me much; nor would drugs. I tried to  tell my GP that besides bph, I had other issues but he just said it's bph period. I was somewhat relieved when the urologist concurred with somee of my thoughts. I would suggest you ask your Dr for an ultrasound, PSA test, and a referral to a urologist. Flomax may help you relax the muscles so you can pee better.

    Peter, go get a psa test ( blood test ) and then the medicine he can prescribe is flowmax but READ SIDE EFFECT !!!!!!

    I had a high psa for my age 51 and I went and had PAE done and my psa droped from an 8 to a 2.89 in 30 days. 

    This procedure is done by a radiologist not a urologist. Read my forum davidha and it will explain.

    Here's the best advice you will get... start self cathing until ya get it figured out. Safe, easy and 100% emptiness of the bladder. A very slight inconvenience but it allows you to live your life to the fullest! With the compacts you can take them anywhere right in your pocket and nobody has a clue! As I am doing this very moment while visiting family in Texas! Took grandkids to the movies and bowling today, went to the rodeo and fair in Austin yesterday and of course having that home brew made by my son in law!! Thank God these are in existence. Key... use the compacts!
