Hello
Thanks for your query and detailing your previous illness.
The Chronic retention of the Urine that you have may be due to what is called a Post Menopausal Urethral Stenosis.Before considering any surgical options please get your Ultrasound scanning done to rule out any pathology in your left kidney.
You would need to see a physician for a proper evaluation You need Cystoscopic examination with Urethral Calibration to dilate the Urethral Passage.
Please feel free to ask if you have any queries I shall be pleased to address the same.
Thanks with Regards.

I have clear fluid like water coming from my vagina-not urethra. I can not feel it happen and only notice when I stand up and see a wet spot on a chair or clothing. There is no odor, pain, itching, color...clear and the same consistency as water. This has happened once before when I did NOT have my period. I have endomitriosis and have had my menstrual cycle since 6/13...the past 4 days with fever, nausea, swollen gums and diarrhea-all normal for me during a bad endo phase. Probably unrelated, but I have a Primary Immune Disorder, CVID Ocular Sarcoidosis, Sjogren s, Asthma, and have had my right ovary and fallopian tube removed when a dermoid tumor grew very large and attached to both organs.

Well recently my urethra s become incredibly itchy, and sometimes i have a sudden urge to urinate not long after i drink something. I m 17 and am sexually active with my boyfriend who was my first and over the last 2 months i ve already been treated for Thrush and a Urinary Tract Infection. Last week Me and my boyfriend decided to use a Durex Tingle, and the next day my genitals were red, painful and had completely swollen up and i found it difficult to sit down. So i took those symptoms as being an allergy to the condom maybe, and eventhough those symptoms have gone I m now left with this Awful itch directly on my Urethra. The last 2 months have been hell and it just seems to be one thing after the other. Please Help.

I have sharp pain in my urethra, mostly after I pee but not always, sometimes not even days. I have been on meds for bladder infections for what isstarting 3 weeks but it doesnt seem to be helping. Also I have a dull pain in my midsection feels almost like a side stich you get after running without warming up, but its more toward the side front on my left side. I am 37 years old, 220 lbs and 5 .1

I had unprotected oral sex with a girl I met at a party 5 days ago. She performed fellatio on me. The very next day I had a slight burning sensation at the tip of my penis. This got much worse the next day and so I sought out a doctor who suggested it was likely a fungal infection of the urethra caused by an infection in the girls mouth. I am booked to have an STD check after two weeks have elapsed just to check if it s something like chlamydia or gonorrhea. The burning sensation is nearly gone after two days of anti fungal medication and I have had no burning while peeling or discharge and my urine is clear. Does the diagnosis sound correct to you? Thanks
