Hi all, I went to the ER in June thought I had a hernia but CT scan showed huge bladder. . They drained 2500 ml. . Which was surprising since I thought I was urinating normally up until 15 minutes before the CT scan. They put an indwelling catheter in me for 4 weeks and I haven't been able to urinate on my own in the months since. I have to self cath 5 times per day. The urolift dynamics test showed my bladder still has function but not optimal. . My prostate is 42 cc or grams. The prostate has some kind of lobe not sure if it is a median lobe or not yet. One urologist recommend turp, my current one said he doesn't think urolift would be effective about 40 % chance and he is the world's most recommended physician for urolift. . He is recommending rezum. He is going to do a cystoscopy in a few weeks and then discuss to make final decision. . I think the stupid lobe thingy is causing the problem because last week I ran out if coude catheters and the straight one didn't want to go in, and all the sudden urine flooded out from around the outside of the catheter with a lot if pressure but that is just the theory. . I would greatly appreciate any recommendations or advice that you can offer. . I want to select the best procedures possible. . I did a ton of research but still at a loss. . Thank you! . Riggs
