Bladder Neck incision (TUIP)

I had a bladder neck incision 10 days ago and I am still unable to urinate. The doctor says it is because of inflammation in the prostate in which he removed part of. He won't prescribe any more anti-inflammatories. I was expected to begin urinating after the indwelling catheter was removed 48 hours after laser surgery. Although the swelling has gone down slightly, I still have to self-cath. Has anyone else had the problem of not being able to pee after this surgery? Everything I have read indicates I should have been peeing by now. I am an otherwise very healthy and fit 46 year old. My doctor and his nurses are not very helpful or sympathetic. Please reply if you have any info or experience with this.
