Couple of weeks ago, ended up in ER as I could barely pee for hours on end - no urge at all to pass urine. Waited for hours there still without urge, was able to pee very small amounts. Finally got a room, bladder scan read 47 ml's, which is low. This event happened 2 days after a cystoscopy... Was sent home after refusing Foley. Next few days, I was back to my normal self - frequent urination, strong urges to pee a lot, sometimes 5 to 6 times an hour. Got better till yesterday, when symptoms were fine. Flash forward to right now, same situation that ended me up in ER. Drank at least 45 ounces of liquid today, have barely urinated, no urge to go at all, but have pressure on bladder with a feeling of constipation (it's not).
I've been diagnosed with BPH with bladder diverticulum. PSA is 1.2. Uro sent me home with alpha blocker (was already taking rapaflo which I tried to tell him) and a med to 'relax' overactive bladder, which I have not taken in fear of urinary retention. During my cystoscopy, I watched the screen when uro got to my prostate - I saw no obstructing tissue there. Have had urinary issues here since 2013, but in early September, after straining really hard to take a poop, this stuff started, including a strange feeling in my bladder. Has anyone else here gone thru something like this before? Opinions? Please let me know, thanks!
