User :   OK
Doctor :   The present symptom that you are having is probably due to the enlarged prostrate.
Doctor :   An enlarged prostrate can prevent urine from being voided completely.
Doctor :   Those that are not voided may be stored as residual urine, which are good medium of micro organism.
Doctor :   When this urine gets voided, it can cause burning sensation or the sting in the urethra.
Doctor :   Its of less concern, unless you develop signs of urinary tract infection.
Doctor :   Since your symptoms have been very recent, its difficult to predict if you are having the urinary tract infection.
Doctor :   Hence I shall suggest you these measures.
Doctor :   1. Drink plenty of water, if there are no restrictions to this from your earlier doctors.
Doctor :   2. Eat health diet.
Doctor :   3. Watch out for these symptoms. Fever, burning sensation while passing urine (not just in the end), pain while voiding, abdominal pain.
Doctor :   If you develop any of these symptoms, then you have to report to your doctor for evaluation.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
