Infection : Is suggested by this "difficulty fully urinating". Is there an odor to the urine? If you pee into a clean jar and leave it out overnight is there a strong odor? If yes to either, then you probably have a urinary tract infection and will need a consult for an antibiotic. Meanwhile, you can drink lots of cranberry juice, but usually not curative. Good luck!
