Incontinence: A common early and possible long term side effect from prostate removal is incontinence. Check with your urologist as to why it is getting worse. Make sure you are not having an opposite problem after recent surgery or from medications such as RETENTION of urine leading to something called "OVERFLOW INCONTINENCE". ...Read more

Could you tell me why it is healthier for the prostate to pee while sitting down?

Could you tell me why it is healthier for the prostate to pee while sitting down?

Not necessary, but..: Many men sit to void so to avoid personal embarrassment or inconvenience from splaying and spraying their very slow, hard-to-direct, dribbling urine flow. So doing will deflect the complaint from partner such as spouse or girlfriend who usually clean such men's messing-up. So, yes, it's "healthier" and more considerate to sit to pee while.... But, don't wait until then and see urologist timely. ...Read more

Yes they can.: Due to the location of the prostate at the outflow point of the bladder, diseases of the prostate often present as urinary problems. These symptoms are usually quantified by questionnaires which are scored. A common one used by urologists is the international prostate symptom score (ipss or auasi). This is based on 7 questions about urinary symptoms and bother. ...Read more

Please tell me what are some good prostate supplements for men to stop peeing in the middle of the night?

Here are some. ..: Getting up to pee 1-2 times is nothing unexpected or unusual since the nighttime urine excretion may increase and bladder holding urine ability may become less as men age. Such changes may widely vary among men. Are there any good supplements to help nocturia? Yet, the data to support the claim helping the prostate by many brands has been lacking. And their ingredients are largely same... ...Read more

Prostate pain: Difficulty emptying your bladder with pain in a 22 year old man generally indicates prostatitis, an mild infection of the prostate gland. Men of your age do not usually get obstruction due to prostate enlargement. The only other cause I can think of for such symptoms would be a kidney stone on the last part of its trip through the urinary tract. ...Read more

Bladder neck obstruc: At age 23 in a male, the problem is generally blockage at bladder neck. The prostate does not begin to enlarge till age 45. However bladder neck is a congenital condition (you are born with it), generally it manifests at your age. The symptoms are like prostate obstruction. The urodynamics and voiding cystogram are more conclusive, cystoscopic exam (looking in the bladder) is confirmatory. ...Read more

Had an erection & it went down. Had to pee & the force of urine was not that weak, but my urine stream went sideways right. Been having prostate issue?

Prostatism: Enlarging prostate with age (don't see your age) can certainly cause a weak stream, and at some point may need to be treated with surgery to open up the urinary flow. It's normal to have some difficulty getting flow started immediately after having an erection. ...Read more

My dad had pvp surgery on a very large prostate. The catheter removal has been attempted twice he did not even have the urge to pee, what is next?

Depends: Post procedure urinary retention is someone common with a very large prostate treated with minimally invasive procedures. This is in part due to the small amount of tissue actually removed during these procedures and also due to swelling created by the procedure. He may need to learn intermittent self catheterization until he's able to void on his own. ...Read more

Everytime after I pee, my uretha or prostate feel inflamed for an hour or so then goes away till I pee again, been tested and no std?

Everytime after I pee, my uretha or prostate feel inflamed for an hour or so then goes away till I pee again, been tested and no std?

Prostatitis? CPPS?: I'm not sure what you mean by "feel inflamed". Discomfort? Pain? Anyway, I'm not surprised your STD tests are negative; such symptoms are not typical for STDs. They are most consistent with prostatitis (which is almost never an STD problem) or perhaps bladder spasm (overactive bladder). Or the chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS). These problems overlap with one another. See a urologist. Good luck! ...Read more

Can benzo withdrawal cause irritation in urethra? Had every test done all negative even prostate. After I pee urethra feels irritated stinging. Help!

Can benzo withdrawal cause irritation in urethra? Had every test done all negative even prostate. After I pee urethra feels irritated stinging. Help!

Something's amiss...: Benzodiazepines (withdrawal or overdoses) aren't associated with urethritis (inflammation of the urethra), according to FDA.gov & other sources in my library. So, something seems amiss. Were you tested for infectious diseases? Did you see a Urologist for diagnosis? Are you sure you don't have Interstitial Cystitis (IC) or some other diagnosis? Use HealthTap Prime or TTYD to exclude other causes. ...Read more

For weeks I masturbate but don't ejaculate. Worried sperm will build up in prostate. When I pee it is bubbly and feels like sperm is leeking out. Prob?

Here are some. ..: What you reported suggests you've fallen victim to the obsession in sex/masturbation. Since you've been so captivated by these thoughts, seek pro-evaluation so to confirm if sperms are leaking out, In fact, ejaculation is optional for life and there is no proof that lacking ejaculation may hurt the prostate, although there has been some occasional talk on so-called blue ball syndrome - more mental ...Read more
