I'm 64 and was experiencing slow flow and was pretty sure I was not completely voiding my bladder. Peeing several times a night and hourly during the day. Mu Uro diagnosed BPH. I don't want to get hooked on meds. Initial cath'ing showed I was retaining 4 litres. Shocked, I am considering either a TURP or Urolift. Meanwhile I am self cath'ing and confirming that I do accumulate 4 litres of pee over a 3 day time frame. 2.7 litres after 24 hours! After cath'ing, I have no pee urge for 12 to 18 hours. This seems to make sense since my bladder is empty and, before this cath'ing started, apparently I was walking around with a gallon of pee in me which is hard to believe. I'm 8 lbs lighter after cath'ing!
Anyway, looking for recs on Uro lift versus TURP especially as it related to reducing retention. Or additional information on self cath'ing. I'm using the red ruibber cath with KY lub.
