Are there exercises I can do to improve my urine flow, even though I have bph?

No: Prostate enlaregement, or bph, occurs as a natural part of normal male aging process. Since this is controlled by hormones, there are no exercises or foods one can eat to help improve the symptoms. If a person becomes symptomatic, then medical therapy may be indicated after an initial evaluation by your physician. ...Read more

Hello Dr I would like to ask you a question if it is normal for a 40 year old man to have to urunate 1 time every nigth during sleeping hours, if this means he could be suffering from BPH? Also what about would be the normal urine flow/intensity for him?

Hello Dr I would like to ask you a question if it is normal for a 40 year old man to have to urunate 1 time every nigth during sleeping hours, if this means he could be suffering from BPH? Also what about would be the normal urine flow/intensity for him?

See remark: At 40 yrs, BPH is uncommon. Voiding once is not that bad but is not common. Do you drink fluids, alcohol,
coffee, tea, a lot of fruits before bedtime? They all cause your complaint. I don't want to go into detail of flow and intensity which require special instruments. Abstain from excessive fluids at night, if you still are bothered with the one-time getting up @ night, see a urologist ...Read more

No BPH but low urine flow @ night. Urlgst wants to insert device into penis to look for block. Is that the only next step? Flow only problem at night

Sounds appropriate: Sounds like the urologist wants to get a visual of what might be causing a urinary flow issue. A cystoscopy sounds appropriate, however, you can discuss this with your family doctor or internist, and possibly get another opinion by a second urologist. ...Read more

Been on flomax (tamsulosin). 4mg / day for BPH for 2 years. Have several side effects. When I stop flomax (tamsulosin) can my urine stream stop entirely?

Possibly: Depending on a number of variables including how long you have been on flomax, (tamsulosin) what is the severity of your bph, and have you ever been in complete urinary retention before, what would most likely happen is a return to your pre-flomax voiding pattern. You should address your concerns with your doctor and discuss alternatives to Flomax (tamsulosin) if you are finding the side effects particularly bothersome. ...Read more

Well I think you: Are saying your gradad has BPH and uses foleys to empty his bladder but he is still peeing thru his penis. Well using foleys does not mean you cannot pee thru your penis. But if there is leakage and incontinence this means that you might have to leave the Foley in for longer. I would consult the urologist taking care of your grandad. ...Read more

69yrs old CT scan result : urinary bladder appears thickwalled+trabeculated 0.9CM along right lateral wall. Has BPH. No blood in urine. Worrisome?

69yrs old CT scan result : urinary bladder appears thickwalled+trabeculated 0.9CM along right lateral wall. Has BPH. No blood in urine. Worrisome?

Nope: Just the "response" of bladder muscle to the obstruction from your prostate gland...it's like any MUSCLE if it has to work harder it will increase in bulk! The "worrisome" part is the enlargement of the gland. There is effective MEDICATION for this and (naturally) prostatic cancer should be ruled out!

Hope this is helpful!

Can't hold my bladder for long. I can empty my bladder completely. Urine/flow tests show nothing. The doctor gave me doxycycline, improved then came back?

Can't hold my bladder for long. I can empty my bladder completely. Urine/flow tests show nothing. The doctor gave me doxycycline, improved then came back?

Frequency: These symptoms are related to irritability of the bladder, very similar to ibs. Many times drinking too many sodas, caffeinated drinks and spicy foods can cause this. Sometimes it can be related to hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle, irritation of the urethra during intercourse. Sometimes you need to take an antispasmodic medication to break the cycle or avoid the above foods. ...Read more

What restores urine flow in a 45 yr old male?

What restores urine flow in a 45 yr old male?

Alpha blocker: Alpha blocker medications relax the muscles around the prostate allowing the urine to flow normally. Finasteride or similar medications can help shrink the prostate tissue to improve urinary flow. This assumes that the bladder is functioning normally and that the problem with urine flow is obstruction secondary to an enlarged prostate. A visit with your doctor can help. ...Read more
