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

Bladder (Definition)

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.

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

Dose dependent: Amitriptyline's sedative effect is usually dose dependent. A lower dose may be better tolerated. Gradual titration of the dose upward may allow one to adjust to the side effects. Often they will diminish after taking it for a couple weeks. There are other meds for bladder dysfunction that cause less sedation. ...Read more

Had a a/p repair w/ bladder sling 8/2010. When I bear down to void my stream stops.  why?

Obstruction: Bladder kinks backwards on itself thus obstructing flow out of the bladder. Similar thing can happen with a urethral sling. Just try nd relax the urthral sphincter muscle and your bladder should contract by reflex. Try not to bear down. ...Read more

Can Overactive Bladder cause: constant feeling of urgency doesnt go away? occasional split stream urination?

Can Overactive Bladder cause: constant feeling of urgency doesnt go away? occasional split stream urination?

Yes - see comments: Urgency suggests overactive bladder(OAB). However split stream suggest bladder outlet obstruction(BOO). Causes of BOO include BPH, urethral stricture, primary bladder neck obstruction, bladder neck contracture. It is common for BOO to cause OAB. BPH is present in only 8% of 30-40 year old men, so it's quite possible you don't have BOO, or have one of the other causes see http://bit.ly/1wHjHAy ...Read more
