I've using the CIC method for the last 6 months and I'm glad I didn't rush into the suggested TURP surgery. I'm heading to a different URO this week and would like some suggestions on what to ask to see if I'm improving. I had a stretched bladder with an obstruction in the lateral lobes, prostate size was 25 cc. PSA test was low so other than asking to check the size of the prostate and maybe the size of the bladder, is there anything else to know?
I also know that he will ask if I stayed on the generic Flowmax that was prescribed 6 months ago and I didn't stay on it long. My theory was that it's my bladder causing most of the problem and I didn't think the drug would clear the obstruction. From what I read, it relaxes the muscle and I didn't feel anything was changing but I was only on for a month.
Should I be asking for a different prescription? Is there anything that can help a stretched bladder, other than exercises and time? Or anything that can clear an obstruction, other than surgeries? And does it make sense to do a surgery for the obstruction, if the bladder is stretched? I'm thinking I need to rehab the bladder before fixing the obstruction.
