Start Stop Slow Peeing

Postby Runner20k on Wed Dec 05, 2018 11:43 am

I am 44 and for as long as i can remember i have had trouble peeing. It takes ages with a very slow flow and constant start stop. I very often feel that i have not finished and stand and wait for a few minutes before the final drops come out. etc.
I have been to the doc and had my prostate checked and all is fine. He hasnt really given me much else to go on. Any idea's.
I am asthmatic and take inhalers daily to deal with it. Pink and blue inhalers

Dear Runner20k,

Checking the prostate is not the only thing that can affect how you pass urine. But I would first look at how, what and when you drink. What fluid you drink, how much fluid you drink, how you drink your fluid and how much excercise you do has a huge impact on how you pass urine. People who complain that they feel they cannot empty their bladder usually are emptying well (your prostate investigations should have highlighted if there were any problems in that area) There could also be an issue with your bladder function which urodynamics should be able to clarify for you. In the first instance you need advice about fluid management and urological review to consider Urodynamics +/- medication if fluid manipulation does not work. Hope that was helpful. Good Luck!
