Long story short...At the beginning of the month has UTI....then after it cleared still had urinating issues...The doctors say the uti was caused by my enlarged prostate blocking the urethra...so they gave me Bactrim....it went away....but still the issue of having problems peeing...so they had to put a catheter in me...July 2...first time...then a week later my doc removed catheter but when i went home i still could not pee...so i had to go to emergency again on July 10 and they re installed the cath....I have been taking terazosin and now they just added Finasteride/Proscar to try and reduce the size of my prostate...now into day 3 and do notice a better flow coming into my leg and night bags..Im going to see a Urologist next monday and he might or might not take it out. This whole thing has been very depressing and i also feel sorry for my wife who hears me moan and complain about my condition..having to change bags at night...making sure im doing it the right way....one more thing...reading all over the internet that you are supposed to clean the bags with White wine vinegar and water but the nurse today said that is not necessary....just run water through it...she said they are made to not have to wash....Agree????
