So I had TUIP this past Wednesday (November 9) and my doctor told me I could take my foley out after 24 hours, but I played it safe and waited 48 hours. Considering my bladder neck was cut, and my uro did a urodynamics and determined i'm producing adequate bladder pressure, i'm not sure why i'm having such difficulty getting anything out. The most i've been able to void on my own has been 175 cc and that was after taking a flomax before bed. I still cath'd out 450 cc. Isn't the idea of TUIP to be improved flow? I'm wondering if I made the wrong choice and now have to live with it. Here are my flow results since taking the cath out on Nov 11.
Nov 11. 435pm 50cc out/300cc cath
Nov 11. 645pm 50cc out/450cc cath
Nov 11. 1115pm 50cc out/400cc cath
Nov 12. 630am 175cc out/450cc cath (took a flomax before bed)
Nov 12. less than 50cc out/300cc cath
Nov 12. less than 50cc out/350cc cath
I'm getting the urge to go but it just seems like my bladder is making an initial push and then running out of gas.
Now i'm worried I spent all this money and risking retrograde for nothing, and that i'll wind up cath'ing for the rest of my life.
I'm 40yo with a 29g prostate.
