Answered by Dr. Prasad 4 hours later
Brief Answer:
Need evaluation...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

How long has this problem been?
What other symptoms are noticed - pain/burning sensation/blood stained urine?
Have you investigated this problem / seen a doctor? if yes, what was the cause?

More commonly symptoms such as difficult urination is seen with urinary tract infection. A routine urine analysis and if necessary an ultrasound scan will help us identify it. I would suggest these tests if it wasn't done earlier. You can contact your local doctor / urologist for the same.

Until then, drinking plenty of fluids, maintaining personal hygeine will benefit you.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Hi,

The report is clear. However I do not know if you have any of the mentioned symptoms. We do not treat patient's report. I would still consider the possibility of infection if you have symptoms. Therefore can you answer my questions.

Brief Answer:
Good to consult an urologist...

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for giving these details.

The described symptoms are not very typical of infection. But it doesn't rule the possibility of infection / inflammation. It's good you are consulting an urologist. In my opinion you might need an ultrasound scan and if necessary a cystoscopy.

Blood sugar and routine hemogram should be ordered too.

Hope this helps.

a year ago I developed urinary retention which turned into a uti , I took doxycycline for 6- 8 months which seemed to alleviate the uti, but constipated me a lot. I now suffer from periodic constipation which affects my urinary stream. I have tried staying gluten free as a possible measure to avoid inflammation. I am still really unsure if that will help however. To describe the stool, its sandy and grainy looking, comes out in parts and is never large always small and pencil like. The doctor ruled out my kidney from scans, and also checked my prostate, both tests came up with nothing. I had a cystoscopy as well but no luck with that either. I am perfectly healthy, but still I have constant constipation -no blood is in the stool -undigested food is seen in the stool To add I feel as if I never completely empty my bladder, it feels like something, like urine is stuck in the shaft of penis

Hi, i have been experiencing painful urination. I am 45 years old. I have had two children, then a tubal ligation was done in 2000. I had an ablation approx. 3 years ago. the pain when urinating has been intermittent for several months now. Could it be due to scar tissue? I went to urulogist who tested my urine. he said it was perfect. Doctor said i need a cystoscopy. I tried to get through it at his office but couldn t because it was so painful. Is there a less painful way to get through a cystoscopy? Can I be sedated for this procedure?

I am a 59 yr. old woman who is having a cystoscopy in a couple of days. The urologist does not use sedation, but rather numbing gel, and says it is only slightly uncomfortable. I do not have an active infection right now but did spend a month on 3 rounds of antibiotics for what I thought was a UTI. After no relief from the antibiotics and excruciating pain all of this time, the pain ubruptly stopped. I believe I passed a kidney stone as there is a history of them with my mother. My question is, will this procedure hurt? It seems that many urologists actually perform these with the patient under aneasthesia. I am so nervous and am wondering if I should bring this up when I go in for the procedure.
