64 yo male hospitalized 3 months can now stand & walk but cannot urinate standing, just sitting using a pee bottle or sitting on the toilet. Ideas?

Interesting: It is usually the other way around. Has a urologist been involved?

I know this is medical speak, but discuss these with treating doctor. Complicated issue and needs proper eval. ...Read more

No: Keep your appointment. The Lupron (leuprolide) injections can last for a month or 3 months depending on your dose. If you got a 1 month injection, your endometriosis may be regrowing. Could also be other causes: uti, intestinal - there is a lot of overlap in the nerves to the pelvic organs (bladder, uterus/ovaries, colon) and it can be hard to differentiate which organ system is causing the pain. ...Read more

Yes: Short of outright excrement on the seat , you will be fine. Iff you are that concerned, take a paper towel and a bit of soap, and wipe it down before you sit--or just crouch. Some bathrooms have toilet seat covers. I have 3 kids and was never concerned about this issue. ...Read more
