About a month ago I had a Radical Retropubic Prostatectomy. After 10 days they took out my catheter, but I had to rush back later that night to get it put in due to urinary retention. Since then we've attempted 3 times, so the doctor performed two Cystocopys with a balloon treatment each time. Not sure of the proper names.
The doctor said this is highly unusual. He says he can't really see anything, but thinks there is some scar tissue that is causing the problem. Starting today they have me self-catheterizing three times a day, or if I can't urinate. I've already had to do two emergency self-cath's and the day isn't half over.
My doctor wants to get past this so we can work on erections, etc. which I totally can get behind
. But this Urinary Retention is kicking my b-u-t-t.
I curious to know if anyone else has had this problem and what was the final outcome?
