I wrote a few days ago about
my slowing urine stream and asked for opinions on possible causes. I got a few responses. The ones I should have listened to were the ones that said get to your Urologist ASAP. On New Year's weekend my slow urine flow came to a near halt. By Sunday morning I was in extreme pain just to get a few drops out. I went to the ER looking for relief. They tried to dialate me several times with a catheter but it would not penetrate the bladder. Due to the Holidays I had to wait till Monday afternoon (on pain meds) to have a surgery done to
open the constriction. I spent the night with a catheter which was removed early today. Just got home a couple of hours ago with everything working though still passing blood, clots, and residual tissue. I am very sore and tired from the whole ordeal. If I ever have a recurrence I will never let it goes as long as I did.
Just wanted to post this note in case there are others out there that are taking a wait and see approach with a slowing urine flow. Dont let it go till it becomes an emergency.
