18 years ago I had a Cystoscopy to determine why on urination the stream was weak and sprayed everywhere. The Urologist simply said that there was some congestion. No treatment was offered. My spray got worse and frequency increased over the years. Three years ago I started on Tamsulosin but currently I have a very weak stream and frequency of 15 - 18 times a day, including 4-6 times a night. I have also experienced urge incontinence at times. Outflow meter proved it was slow and a bladder scan showed 120ml retention. Prostate is large but smooth with a PSA of 3. A Cystoscopy carried out yesterday (17/9/2018) looked good and the Urologist was pleased that there were no obvious problems. He said I could have Finasteride but as far as I am aware that is for reducing the prostate size and as the Cystoscopy showed no problems, I maintain that I must have something else like an over-active bladder etc. I void between 60 - 120ml most of the time but I have sometimes voided 300ml at night. I have persuaded the Urologist to book me in for an Urodynamic test to assist in my diagnosis. I am a fit 76 year old and followed all advice to abstain from drinking tea, coffee, fizzy drinks and alchohol. I sometimes despair when I find myself visiting the toilet when the urge comes every 20-30 minutes. Has anyone here had similar problems?
