Posted , 3 users are following.

Has anyone had associated problems post BNI with pressure sensation in the testicles and scrotum or could this be everything starting to settle down in the bladder, Urethra. I am now 5.5 weeks after the procedure.

      Hi Hamza

      Generally burning sensation before,during and after passing water. I am now 6.5 weeks after the Procedure.

      Urgency at time to time, and pain in the testicle although this could be as a result of a lower back pain.

      Have you had a BNI procedure recently and are you suffering similar problems or have you gone through these problems in the past?

      Thanks for replying, looking forward to hearing from you.

      Hi Hamza

      I had a BNI procedure 6 weeks ago and I am having burning sensation the length of the urethra just before,during, and after peeing.

      I got retro ejaculation after I had laser treatment for an enlarged prostate nearly 1 year ago.

      I had urine infection twice after the BNI procedure which also included bacteria, inflammation and blood, I am clear now.

      I am drinking 2 ltrs of water per day to keep everything flushed.

      Very good to share our experiences. Have you had the procedure yet?

      Speak soon

      You are not supposed to have burn all over the length of the urethra. Something is wrong. Have you talked to your doctor about it?

      How strong is your flow now?

      I have not undergone BNI yet though my doctor told me it is better if I do it but there is no guarantee it will fix my problems. I am 26. Yet to get married and have kids. So, BNI is no where in my radar. My bladder is alright, albeit low capacity. Kidneys are fully fine. So, if things start going south, I will self cath instead.

      My symptoms are 4 ml/s average flow rate (minimum average is 10 ml/s), hesitancy, frequency, intermittency, nocturia. Ya, I know it is bad but I'm not willing to ruin my sex life and future by causing RE from BNI.

      Hi

      It is difficult to be accurate with burning that radiates along with the fact that I am much older (73) and of course healing rate will not be as good at when I was in my 20,s and 30,s

      Good luck in whatever decision you make

      What you mean is you do not SEE blood. Blood may be microscopic. It can't hurt to go to the GP for a urine test (a simple MSU - midstream urine) should be informative for the presence of an infection. If there isn't one, then a CT of the region is needed,

      One more thing.

      Often if the MSU is negative for infections, then invasive steps need to be taken.

      I am now in such a situation.

      Last week my urine MSU was negative for infection and I am NOT keen on invasive procedures.

      So I asked my GP to run it again, in the hope that

      a) The first test was wrong, that is or the second test contradicts the first, in which case one does not rush to invasive procedures or

      b) if the second test yields the same result as the first, I then know it was not false.

      Hi Barney

      Thanks as always for your thoughts it is good to talk to someone that is going through similar situations.

      The urine test came back all clear for bacteria and blood, however it still shows inflammation in the cells.

      I am now at 7 weeks since the procedure, and I am still getting burning/Stinging sensation most of the time. Did you get this sensation and how long for?

      Take care

      I can't recall if I mentioned it, but after radiation for PCa I had a lot of burning when peeing. It sounds like you have a similar issue.

      I found GREAT relief in a drug sold in supermarkets in Australia, where I am, called URAL. It comes in a box of 20 sachets. You mix one sachet with water and drink it. It is an alakaliniser and reduces the acid (or at least the effect of acid) in urine. 10 mins after taking it I pee with NO burning at all.

      Not sure where you live and if you're able to buy it, hopefully you can. I swore by it and traveled a couple of years ago with 2 boxes in my carry on.

      It's your lucky day.

      I just had a thought.

      Go to any chemist in the UK and ask for powder or granules for

      cystitis relief. This condition has a lot in common with your symptoms.

      A quick look at the only UK chemist I know, Boots, shows they sell

      products to relieve pain (including burning) from cystitis.
