I am a 68 yr. old male with bladder retention and a large diverticulum. I had green light prostate surgery 7 yrs. ago. I continue to have large post void retention as well as a fairly large bladder diverticulum. I am seeing a different urologist, and he has had me through a number of tests…uroflow, urodynamic, and next Mon. a cystocopy. My results from the uroflow and urodynamic indicated a lot of retention…over 450ml. and lots of pressure from the urodynamic test. I do have urge incontinence as a result. I have tried numerous meds, but don’t like the side effects. Since I have mitro valve prolapes, and glaucoma, I’m afraid meds may make things worse. I have worn diapers for some time to manage my situation, and they don’t bother me. I’m also afraid of catheters. How do I convince my urologist that I’m fine with things as they are? If surgery is necessary to protect my kidneys, I’m fine with that. So, that’s my history somewhat abbreviated. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks for your attention.
