Re: Very High Urine Post Void Residual Why? What to do?


Because I have a neurogenic bladder, I also retain high residuals after voiding which created a condition perfect for urinary tract infections. I used to retain about 350 ml's. I would be a little leary of a TURP as they can leave you incontinent.

My urologist started me doing a Clean Intermittent Catheterization (CIC) and that eliminated my problem. I have been doing this since 2004 and wish I had started many years ago.

I hope this helps.
