Hi all - had a TURP 6 weeks ago for a combination of chronic prostatitis and BPH - it turned out to be a High bladder neck and relatively small prostate - had a BNI and a mini TURP- 6/7 grams removed. Post op spiked a fever was placed on Augmentin - all cultures negative. Day 2 went home after catheter removal - same night has acute retention- ER 600cc urine/ wore a foley for 4 days on double dose tamsulosin - passed trial without catheter- Antibiotics for 4 weeks . A week after stopping antibiotics urine flow again decreased ( had a good not spectacular flow postop) - no retention but stream is very poor. Mild dysuria - back on antibiotics and tamsulosin with marginal improvement
what could be causing the poor flow- uro says the bladder neck should be wide open and that it is likely to be prostatitis
