Urination Issues

Post by JohnD » Wed Jun 24, 2020 7:30 am

Urinating problem

I’m a 30 year old male andI’ve had an issue urinating for a number of years now, since at least college that I can remember. I’m in good shape with good blood pressure, heart rate, etc....

1) Very weak urine flow. It almost feels like there is something blocking or obstructing when I try to push really hard to increase the pressure of my flow. Not in my penis, but above that maybe in my bladder or prostate - not really sure. But something is preventing me from increasing the pressure.

2) It’s extremely difficult to pee standing up. It can take over a minute sometimes to start going, again very weak flow. Sitting down to pee definitely helps, but it’s still difficult and takes time to start, with weak flow

3) Ill have to pee multiple times in short periods if I’m drinking a lot of water, and I think that may be because my bladder isn’t emptying fully.

4) I have low testosterone levels and am taking TRT - not sure if this is related in any way

Does anyone know what the issue(s) may be? I feel like it’s definitely getting worse as I get older and I need to address this now.

You have been suffering with this for way to long not to have it checked out by a urologist who will probably want to scope you to see what the obstruction is. I imagine that UTIs are an issue if your bladder isn't getting properly emptied? You could have stones, strictures, polyps or some sort of tumor or nerve problem. There seems to be many things that could give you this problem. Have you ever been cathiterized to see if you were able to empty your bladder? Yes there is a very large amount of men who have this issue due to prostate issues but IMHO I think you're way to young to have prostate issues but I'm not a medical professional. Have you ever had issues with your back/spinal cord?

Thanks for the reply - i'm making an appointment today. I've never had any significant back/spinal cord issues. I've also never been cathiterized either. So looks like this may be difficult to diagnose on the first visit.

I've been self catheterizing for 20+ years due to spinal cord injury caused by my own immune system. Urination was the the first function I lost and I have never regained that ability but thankfully recovered 90+% and can walk and wipe my own ass. I've also had strictures caused by scar tissue from having to catheterize thousands of times. I think a good urologist will have you fixed up in no time. Hopefully it's something stupid that you will look back on and can laugh about. Let us know what the doc says.
45 years old happily married and living in Florida. I've had ED for over 20 years due to spinal cord injury. Viagra and Cialis work OK for me but Trimix injections work GREAT! I've also had to self cath for as long as I've had ED.
