I have had recurrent UTIs for more than 15 years. Although I was urinating regularly, albeit with a weak flow, I started vomiting black liquid two weeks ago and at the hospital 3000cm3 of unpassed urine was found and extracted by catheter which is still in place. I had noticed that my abdomen was becoming bloated, but as I had no pain, thought nothing of it. The urologist at the hospital has booked me in for a TURP although he didn't really take a full history. Another urologist whom I saw on referral from the hospital has advised not to rush into a TURP and rather have some investigations to discover exactly why there was a problem. I am 70 and in very good condition still running and racing from time to time. My gut feeling is to opt out of the surgery and follow a programme of investigations. I would welcome advice.
