Geezer, great post. You gave me a lot of info from your doc visit that is very pertinent to what I am facing right now. Mine said the same thing about
the lack of stream while whizzing. My dr. was afraid to
open up things too much in fear of causing perm. incontinence. He said the same thing about
the ability to empty the entire bladder, even if it is slow.
Best to you brother.
