Back in April I underwent the green loght laser for BPH. Let me state for the record that I DID have BPH. Even so, I STILL was simptomatic of BPH. It was determined that an old spinal problem from 2003 had reappeared and the messages to the bladder muscles were not being received. My doctor put me on self cath 4X per day.
While on the cath regimine my MD decided to try something else. He put me on Bethanechol 25 MG 3X per day. This is a med that in many cases "wakes up" sleeping bladder mucles.
Did it work? DID IT EVER! I now void regularly and completely and I have a stream that I haven't seen in 40 years!
Here's my quandry: I will see my MD today and he will see my great progress. He says I'll parbably be married to this med from now on. Bur so what? Diabetics are "married" to insulin, high blood pressure, heart patients, etc are all "maried" to somthing or other.
I have a one year prescription running for caths. If the doctor doesn't say anything about the caths do I have a moral obligation to mention it? I was thinking in terms of amassing a "stash" for any possible retention problems.
