Slow stream: When you hydrodilate the bladder you stretch the bladder muscle which make weaken its contractility temporarily. In a male who may have an enlarged prostate it may cause resistance to flow and therefore a weak stream. The question I have is what led to hydrodilation of your bladder. Glomerular ions are seen with interstitial cystitis but maybe just result of overstretching the bladder. ...Read more

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more

Blad nck hypertrophy: Prostatitis is typically characterized by irritative voiding symptoms (yours are obstructive voiding symptoms) and pain. The dre very rarely is revealing in cases of prostatitis. You are too young for a typical enlarged prostate. Cystoscopy rules out urethral stricture. You probably have primary bladder neck hypertrophy. See a neurourologist to confirm. ...Read more

LUTS: You may be describing lower urinary tract symptoms. Check out IPSS (http://www.uptodate.com/contents/calculator-international-prostatism-symptom-score-ipss & http://www.urospec.com/uro/Forms/ipss.pdf). Then discuss w/your GP. Bladder infection, uncontrolled diabetes & diuretics (water pill) can also do this too. Finasteride & dutasteride can shrink prostate if enlarged. Alpha blockers help too. ...Read more

Urethral strictures,: non relaxation (functional) or actual obstruction of bladder neck as well as posterior urethral valves can all cause weak urinary stream. Poor relaxation of external urethral sphincter/tight pelvic floor muscles can be cause. Can respond to biofeedback or medication to relax voluntary (striated) muscle. Flummox certainly can help to relieve a tight bladder neck. ...Read more

Unfortunately, there are no easy fixes without proper diagnosis and proper understanding by the patient and in cases of younger ones like your daughter, their immediate caregivers. Her doctor should cleanse her colon with laxatives and follow up in 2-3 wks for any need for ref. ...Read more
