If this does not help then i send my patients to the 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?

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

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

My grany wit BPH grade 2n urinary incontin wit chronic foleys cath.Fa past 2 tyms urine s leakn 4m penis rather via tube whch happens 3days aftr cathn?

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
