I'm not in urinary retention.
I am able to void but my PVR has gone from 89 cc to 389 cc. I was forlorn when I discovered this yesterday.
I saw Dr. James E. Lingeman, the foremost HoLEP surgeon in the US. It seems I don't have the luxury of time anymore.
I'm willing to try CIC, and guys here like jimjames and oldbuzzard have been helpful.
Any suggestions on videos to watch for CIC?
I'd like to start with a smaller catheter. Does a 12 gauge sound right?
Are there videos on YouTube that teaches how to self-cath? I don't have a computer other than my work laptop so I can only watch them on my iPhone.
For the experts, can CIC cause the prostate to swell even more?! If so, wouldn't that make matters worse?
Does CIC raise PSA? If so, when do you go for a follow up PSA check?
Any tips on how to relax when doing it the first time?
Do you stand or lie down?
How do you know when you've reached the bladder?
I know I have a lot of questions. I greatly appreciate any help from you men.
