My friend has a water retention during chemotherapy because the leukemia. He has urine retention 0, 5-1 liters a day. Does he need the Lasix (furosemide) therapy?

My friend has a water retention during chemotherapy because the leukemia. He has urine retention 0, 5-1 liters a day. Does he need the Lasix (furosemide) therapy?

Edema: If your friend is accumulating water, she needs to speak to the oncologist directing the chemotherapy or her internist to see if diuretic therapy is appropriate in her case. I suspect that it may be needed and only a physician who examines her can make the decision to start her on Lasix (furosemide) or increase its dose. Good luck. ...Read more

Will Methylcobalamin750 mcg and Pregabalin75 mg is EFFECTIVE in treatment of Neurogenic Bladder URINE RETENTION or What will be OTHER Treatment? Thanks

B12: Neither of these treatments are used in neurogenic bladder commonly. Methylcobalamin, a B12 precursor, would be needed if one was deficient to allow small nerves to heal but not specific to bladder. Lyrica (pregabalin) does not typically help neurogenic bladder symptoms, despite helping neuropathic pain in many conditions. ...Read more

Does urine retention usually cause many symptoms?

Does urine retention usually cause many symptoms?

Yes: Retention can be partial or complete. Obviously if one cannot void at all the bladder can only stretch so far until it becomes very painful. When someone can empty partially but leave more than 100 cc behind, then frequency of voids increases along with the risk of uti. The cause should be found- most older women have a fallen bladder, and younger ones can have spasms in the pelvic floor muscles. ...Read more

Can you tell me if ya bladder is malfunction and you have urine retention where does the urine go?

Can you tell me if ya bladder is malfunction and you have urine retention where does the urine go?

Stays in bladder: With urinary retention, the bladder is not able to be emptied. This causes the bladder to enlarge and distend, resulting in pain and discomfort. In severe cases, your kidneys can lose function because the urine made in the kidneys then can't leave the body. In men, the most common cause is an enlarged prostate. Loss of bladder contractility is another cause. See a urologist. ...Read more

How can fear cause un-intended urination althought sympathetic ns cause urine retention?

How can fear cause un-intended urination althought sympathetic ns cause urine retention?

Sympathetic Overload: After an overwhelming sympathetic stimulation occurs (horrific fear), the sympathetic portion may shut down temporarily. The unopposed parasympathetic system, in concert with loss of sympathetic tone, can then cause contraction of the bladder wall with relaxation of the urinary sphincter. Thus, increased sympathetic tone from meds e.g. Sudafed, can cause retention inversely to the above. ...Read more

Was catheterized 12/6 in pm for urine retention and given flomax (tamsulosin). Is it normal, when not drinking a lot to still be producing like 900 cc's of urine in a 4 hr time frame 2-3 days later?

Was catheterized 12/6 in pm for urine retention and given flomax (tamsulosin). Is it normal, when not drinking a lot to still be producing like 900 cc's of urine in a 4 hr time frame 2-3 days later?

Hhmm: Flomax (tamsulosin) is meant to work on folks with prostates...

If you had surgery or received IV fluids during what sounds like a hospitalization, the body usually starts to get rid of the excess fluid 3-4 days later, as you get better. Makes sure your blood sugar is ok, since that can make you go more than you should. Sometimes after retention kidneys can't retain water well. ...Read more

Should I continue to drink fluids with acute urinary retention? The more I drink the more uncomfortable and pain I am in and can't pass urine

Here are some. ..: With "normally" healthy kidneys, drinking more water forces kidneys to excrete more urine to avoid water intoxication but to fill up the bladder faster to its overdistention resulting in more damage to the bladder. So, to confirm if you indeed have acute u-retention, go to urgent care or ER for evaluation by checking urinalysis with properly collected urine and residual urine after detailed Hx. .. ...Read more
