The blood tinged urine following straining is to be expected, if the BM's are that difficult, you might want to use a stool softener, shouldn't be straining too much. I would be concerned about the diminishing stream, could be a stricture or obstruction, be sure to call your MD, are you still drinking plenty of water?

I haven't urinated like a 16-year old, since I was 16. In my situation, I urinate with less of a stream an less force than pre-surgery. . . but it all comes out, eventually . . . and without pain or discomfort. I haven't had blood in my urine for a couple of weeks now. about the BMs: I've been using a stool softener - Senokot-S - since coming home from the hospital (as directed by my Urologist/Surgeon) and I think it's been a big help (no problems with BMs). Good news from you about incontenence, something I still experience.
