I am 46 years old. I have suffered with urinary issues for over 20 years. When I was 24 I started having problems with starting and weak stream. It then turned into a split stream and sometimes would spray out, drip etc.
I went to the urologist and he said I probably had scare tissue from an injury or maybe a STD caused some scaring. He order a rigid cystocopy at the hospital. I was out for the entire process. When I came to all he said was you should be fine I will write you a script for Flowmax.
We I wasnt fine. I did not urinate any better and the flowmax just made me dizzy. So I just lived with it never went back.
10 years go by same problems no worse no better. I try a different uro. Same thing, he wants to do a costocopy a urodymanics test etc. Outcome - take FlowMax. Again flowmax does nothing for me.
I again leave and decide to just live with it. Its now over 20 years I have lived with this problem. I decide maybe there is someting new and I try another uro. This time he says well you have a large prostate and once I a cysto and urflow I can determine what we can offer you.
After all of the tests he recommended Rezum. So I went home did some research and scheduled the threatment.
I was given 2-10 mg Valium and 2-5/325 percocets and antibiotics to take prior to the procedure. I was nervous and scared as hell to have this thing stuck up my penis. The cystoscope is horrible for me.
The doctor did a ultrasound prostate block and then a catheter with a numbing agent before inserting the Rezum tool.
I really did not feel the prostat block at all or the Rezum tool going in. I did however feel the treatments. i have 2 on each side and they did hurt. The 4 one I did not feel for some reason. I left witha foley cath and went home without any problems or pain. I was gievn antibioyics to take for an additional 15 days and he added rapaflow for 30 days. I was given a prescrition ofr 30 percocets but I ahve not needed them once.
He had me come back in 1 day to remove foley cath which I thought was way too soon. But they filled me with salin and I was able to pass it all with only a small amount of blood at the end and it was foaming.
Doctor said go hiome your fine. Well I am not I haven been able to pass urine much at all. Just drips and I am drinking 10-14 glasses a day. I do not have any pian or pressure but I sure cannot squeeze out a p**s. They said I woul de swollen for a few days but its been a week now and I still cannot pee as I did before the procedure which was good at all even worse now.
Hopefully things improve over the next few days or I will be going back to find out about a catheter.
Anyone else have this problem after the prodecure of not being able to go for days/weeks?
