Thanks for your query.

You are currently on anti hypertensive drug Metacard Xkl 50 and Atorvas to lower down your serum Cholesterol. Your Blood pressure and cholesterol is well under control and do not need to be changed. All the investigations that you have done are within normal range. Therefore, there is nothing to worry about.

You are getting body ache and pain in sitting posture especially in the evening. Will you kindly let me know the nature of your job? Do you need to sit whole day? As this can be related to your work profile. As regards to your query regarding frequency of passing urine, please get your Urine examined (Routine) done to rule out any infection. At the same time, get your ultrasound scanning done to rule out Prostatitis, which is common at this age. In the Meanwhile, you can take antibiotics like Ciprofloxacin twice daily along with painkillers like Tab. Diclofenac twice daily, after consultation with a local physician.

If you have any query please do not hesitate to revert. I shall be glad to address your queries.

Thanks for your feedback.

Your routine Urine test probably indicates UTI (take following medications.

You may need a course of antibiotics like Ciprofloxacin and alpha blockers like Tamsulosin for the urinary problem.

You also may require NSAIDs painkillers like Tab Diclofenac for the symptomatic relief.

All these are prescription drugs; need to be taken under a doctor’s supervision. Please get them prescribed by your water so that you will pass 2 liters of urine in 24 hours.

As regards to your backache, it is mostly related to your job, which entails you for continuous sitting for 5 hours. Therefore, take rest for 15 minutes at regular intervals and practice some yoga and moderate exercises to strengthen muscles of the back. This will definitely help you in long run.

Once you get your Ultrasound scan done please do communicate it to me to make necessary suggestions.

Thanks with Regards.

without taking any medicine i got the urine tested for routine and culture, both tests were negative. so whay the problem of my frequent urination and slight driblling after urination, where as the urologist said the prostate is nomal and flat.
some burning is there in the urethrea, and tip. is it the habit of my urination to drainout completly the urine while urinating or passage is blocked in urethra.

is it an uti? if no bacteria in urine, my esr is 1 hr is 6.

what exactly the medicines to take?

because doctors here GP are telling not to indulge on medicines.

whether can i take uropas as suggested by the local urologist to solve my problem.

my urine driblling after urination is causing my briefs very smelly.

pl suggest immediatly.

Thanks for your query.

Your routine Urine and culture reports do not indicate a UTI. Though your Prostate on Digital Rectal Examination is normal sometimes it is not 100 % correct as it has its own limitations as far as size of the Prostate gland is concerned.

Did you get your Ultrasound scanning done which is one of the vital tests to determine the size of the Prostate and to conclude the reasons for increased frequency and dribbling micturition? So please get it done earlier.

Please ask the Sonologist to check for Post Void Residue of Urine. Consult a Urologist who may carry out Endoscopic examination of Bladder (Cystoscopy) to diagnose the cause of your symptoms and to rule out Bladder Neck Obstruction which is the second most reason for these symptoms apart from Enlarged Prostate.

In the meanwhile continue taking Tomsulosine once in a day. Please do write again after the results of Ultrasound scanning

Thanks with Regards.

Sir as suggested by you, Ultrasound scan done for pelvis and KUB, results are normal.
Post void urine residue 5 ml

Prostate 20 cc ( 3.3*3.3*3.7)

Then why left of urethra is paining little.
Pl suggest me the medicines to solve my problem.

Answered by Dr. P. T. Patil 37 minutes later
Thanks for the feedback.

Your ultrasound report does not indicate any Enlargement of Prostate and the post-void residue is not significant.

In the absence of any positive test result, the cause of the dribbling that you are getting is likely to be due to involuntary contractions of the Bladder Muscles Termed as Over Active Bladder
You may consider taking Tab Darifenacin after getting a prescription from your family Physician. Please revert and feel free to write me about the result of this treatment. Please note that this drug has its side effect like dryness of the mouth.

Thanks with Regards.
