Brief Answer: relax while urinating. plenty fluids. investigatio Detailed Answer: Hi, I went through the query and understood your concern. The symptoms you are referring may be due to benign prostate hypertrophy or due to ureteric stones. If you have any pain and bleeding during micturition the chance of stone in urethra may be considered. You need to get done USG abdomen and pelvis and urine routine investigation for diagnosis. For now drink plenty of water, be relaxed while urination as this relaxes the bladder (urethra) around prostate gland and help in micturition and get the above said investigation. The treatment depends on the diagnosis. I hope this information helps you. Feel free to ask for any further queries. I will be glad to answer them. Wish you faster recovery and good health. Regards

I have read that building up pressure and pushing as hard as possible will pass the blockage. This sounds both painful and dangerous .

Brief Answer: forced diuresis for small stones . investigation r Detailed Answer: Hi, Yes. Pushing hard will help in removing the stone. But this is possible for smaller stones. If sharp edges or big stones this may be harmful as this can lead to bleeding and damage to the mucosa. Since you can initiate urination the symptoms may be due to BPH as in complete block in urethra due to stones, you cannot urinate. Just relax and urinate, this will help in BPH. After USG abdomen and pelvis we can plan for your management. Forced diuresis (building pressure and forced urination) is one of the management for stones of smaller size. This will be done under analgesic and sedative drug. I hope this answers your query. Wish you good health. Regards
