My husband had an episode of AUR over 2 months ago we believe caused by taking an antihistamine and six pints of beer. Prior to this Slight urinary issues, slow stream in the morning, etc but nothing major.
After the the retention episode he was put on Tamsulosin. He is very keen to come off them and thinks as the retention had a cause ( antihistamine and large volume of beer) if he's careful from now on he should be ok. Is this silly or do you think he would be ok to chance it? His prostate on DRE we were told felt normal size for his age , 54) so I don't think it's a overly large prostate causing an obstruction.
He he is due another PSa in a few weeks so don't want to risk retention and using catheter that may push up PSa but just wondered if you lovely gents thought he may be ok without Tamsulosin seeing as we had a good reason for the retention?
Does the bladder shrink back ok and work again on its own?
Also so have thought about changing to Alfuzosin..... Does anyone know if the retro is less on this and does it affect PSa levels?
many thanks for any thoughts and advice,
