Since my urolift in May I have been gradually feeling worse. During the second and third month I didn't have to strain ( for the first time in many years) to start a urine flow. When I had the urge to pee I wouldn't have to strain or wait 5 minutes before I could. Felt great. Not a strong stream but definitely better. My stream still isn't strong but recently it's taking a bit more time. I don't have to strain though.
Afterwards I rarely feel relieved and if I am in the car driving somewhere have to make several stops to pee.
Four days ago I had mild diarrhea. During going to the bathroom the area inside my urethra and my prostate started burning. That burning, although not as bad is uncomfortable now. I dropped off a urine sample today at the Surgeons lab to see if I have an infection of some type.
Three days ago I had my regular GP test my urine and he said it looked alright. I did notice on and off, but not always my urine was a bit cloudy. It wasn't today though. The surgeon told me he removed a stone of some type during the urolift operation but never told me it's location or what type it was or if it was causing any blockage. So lately I am considering the posibility thats the problem now. To my knowledge I have never had a stone before. I am a 72 year old male and have had a history of urinary problems from a young age.
At age 25 I had a blockage in the bladder neck and couldn't pee at all. They performed a TURP on me based on the description. It worked and lasted me until the age of 45. Things started to gradually get worse but tolerable until my 60's. I was also diagnosed with Pelvic Function Disorder and went through therapy and that did help. If the urolift was successful then why am I having these symptoms.
I'm pretty depressed. Sorry to make this such a long post.
