I ask because after 1.5yrs of symptoms of constant bladder pain, hard time initiating flow, having to stain, not being able to keep flow up and pee tricking down my leg when I'm trying to push hard and the feeling of peeing razors... A Dr finally figures out I'm retaining urine. Background- I went in for a flexible systoscopy in Oct. 17 but Urologist could not Finnish. My urethra was too narrow. Left me that way (no treatment for the issues or anything for pain) till My Rigid Systo in Nov. Left hospital feeling the same. pee trickled, couldn't initiate flow etc. Was given antibiotics but started peeing blood as soon as I was off them. Saw Dr at walk in as Urologist couldn't see me till Jan as "I was fixed". Saw urologist in office then. He said that he could not treat me for the pain till I have another flexible systo (that he promised would work) as he didn't know what was wrong. Went in Feb. 14 for it but again it could not be completed. Urethra is too narrow. He said I am retaining urine but sent me home in the condition I am to wait another month. Was in too much pain today and went emerge here took 7 hours to get through and Dr almost refused to do anythig but write my Urologist a note to try to see me sooner. (they scanned my bladder, machine said retaining 100mls) he finally agreed to have my bladder drained by a cath. Took 3 nurses and 4 caths, but they finally got one in. Dr came in while the cath was still draining and told the nurse that was good and to take it out. She asked to please finnish draing it so I could at lest be empty. He said I didn't need to and to take it out now. Nurse measured the urine after he left cause the Dr told her not to bother. She got 150 mls out before he stopped her. Was sent home again like this to wait another month for my next rigid systoscopy and dilatation. ( No cath. or anything except he did give me Tramacet for pain. Hope it helps a tiny bit) So, I'm just wondering, nurse said I'm likely retaining around 200mls of fluid if she'd been allowed to fully drain me. Is that OK? (No other Urologist will see me here as I'm already under the care of one)
