Brief Answer:
Urology visit

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query. The most common cause of bleeding in males is related to prostate issues, and you have a prior history of surgical removal of the prostate. Nevertheless, other structures from the urinary tract can bleed, including the kidneys and the bladder; most likely, the reason for the straining are retained clots at the level of the bladder causing intermittent obstruction. You should see your urologist with urgency, as you will need a series of tests, likely urinalysis, a CT scan and a cystoscopy to determine where the bleeding is coming from, what the cause is, and therefore the treatment options.

Yours truly,
