Dear Doctor

Please refer to following link. I have similar problems


When I had increase in urination frequency I consulted with a doctor and had a Ultrasound of Lower pelvis to check if it was due to prostate. Those results were normal. I took antibiotics Augemtin for 1 week. This source was complete a month back

I also had Uroflowmetry. The flow was on 18ml/sec and doctor said it was on lesser side there was some obstruction as the curve was broken in between. He put me on Urimax 0.4 mg for 30 days and suggested to do a uroflowmetry test again. It is one week now after this

Apart from this I have constipation problems and usually need to strain to clear bowel. Sometimes I am unable to clear bowel completely at the end.
For this I consulted a Gastroenterlogist and the Dr. said might be IBS and prescribed course of tablets, IBSET (2 weeks), Capsule VXL #3 (1 month). Normaxin (2 weeks). Peg Move. this course is complete one month back

Somtimes there is wetting in my inner wear

Apart from this I dont have any other health problems

Thanks for your query,

I have seen your symptom history and reports.
I want you to send me a scanned copy of your uroflowmetry and get a post prostatic massage urine exam done.
Your symptoms maybe due to an overactive bladder or due to an inflammatory condition in the prostate.
You would then be benefited by a course of alfablockers,anti-inflammatory,anti-cholinergics and sitz bath.
I hope i have answered your query.
I will be happy to answer any further queries that you may have.

I have seen your uroflowmetry which is normal.
You can consult a surgeon or local urologist who will do a rectal exam and you can give your urine for testing following that.
Please be assured that this is a treatable condition and not a cause for worry.
I hope i have answered your query.
I will be happy to answer any follow-up query.
