I am 71 years old, make a yearly visit for a wellness exam and everything on the report is positive. I consider myself to be in good health.
On 9-12-2019, I visited a Nurse Practitioner at a local Urology office.
Reason for visit is that I had a sudden instance of pain during urination.
Never had anything like it before. Never had a catheterization, never been to emergency room for treatment. Never had kidney stones. Maybe once every couple of weeks, I might have to get up and go to the bathroom during the night
She did a prostate exam and blood test and was told that I had a case of e-coli bacteria.
She then set me up for a cystoscopy procedure with the urologist. Right after the exam, the urologist wanted me to have the Urolift procedure. I didn't know what a Urolift was at the time, so I just trusted the urologist.
On 11-22-2019 had the Urolift procedure done.
On 12-6-2019 I make another follow up visit and I am still retaining about 100 ml of urine. Now I'm starting to have doubts about this procedure.
On 9-10-2020 , went back to the urologist and had a urine retention of 200 ml.
I am having doubts about the Urolift procedure for my situation.
Am I wrong to feel this way?
