Re: Could constipation cause a man to have difficulty urinating too?
I have never been constipated to the point where it has interfeared with urination.So,I talked to a friend today that has had all sorts of GI problems for 35 years.He said,that he has been constipated so bad at times that not only did it decreased his ability ---it hurt very much to urinate.
I read some medical ref. books about constipation and no references was made to urination except some kidney problems can cause constipation.
A problem that some men have with urination is caused by the prostate gland enlarging and narrowing the urethra reducing urine flow. I also think that if the last part of the colon is enlarged by being constipated ---it can put pressure on the prostate/urethra area and cause urination problems.
As you know some drugs can readily affect kidney function.
I think you need to have the problem checkout by a Doctor but I'm sure you already have--
