Suggest a treatment for swollen prostrate and distended bladder

Have extremely distended bladder. Swollen prostate caused build up over months until ER drained out over 3,500 cc's. Dr did "rotorutter" prostate surgery. Two weeks after surgery still can not go. Bladder two damaged. I cath very 5 hours. Are there any surgeries that can be done on the bladder, or electrical stimulation that would work for this kind of problem?? MC

Hi,

I cannot say in your particular case, but generally:
1) it needs to heal and
2) it isn't the slowest region to heal generally a month is a long time and the inflammation gets better by then.

Continuous cathether for a while is often an option just to let it heal up.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Matt Wachsman, Addiction Medicine Specialist

Belly is swollen, pain in lower back left side. Doctor stated if I was not almost completely better by tonight he may have to hospitalize me on Monday.

My husband has enlarged prostate and takes Tamsulosin 0.3 mg (Flomax). He was having lots of bladder or urinary infections before he started the medicine. He also has some tumors in the kidneys that his urologist keeps check on, and has been wanting him to have anther fish test, which he had one in 2012. He has had a melanoma on his face and they found another cancer under it (some kind of carsanoma). His father had one kidney (the other shrunk up pin a ball) and his grandmother died from cancer that I believe began in her kidney. Recently he went back for a checkup and his urologist told him he had found a pathologist that took BlueCross Blueshield of MS and it came back normal. BlueCross Blueshield denied the claim because they said it was not medicaly necessary. Do you think with his history and family history it was medically necessary?

i am a 44 year old male, 5'8" tall, 170 pounds, go to the gym 6 times a week, very fit and eat well.
My issue is I do not feel the full sensation of ejaculation anymore and it is also harder to reach ejaculation. My libido is still very strong. I visited my doctor last year because I had problems urinating and when I ejaculated, it came out in a watery substance with very little feeling. i thought I had prostate problems but i had that checked by my family doctor, a urologist and proctologist. I have had a colonoscopy also and I am found to be normal and healthy. i have always been a rather nervous individual and tense. To be honest, and this is extremely important, i feel that my sphizter has slowly tightened up over the last 20 years, and it is relevant to this issue because I do not feel through my sphizter anymore, either when i orgasm or even if i push in general without having to go the washroom. All 3 doctors do not notice that my sphizter is tight at all. i not know what is wrong with me. I have lost sensation.
