Dec 4, 2012 · urinary incontinence in Kidney & Bladder

I have the exact same issue. In 38 and this started for me when I was 36. I have had 2 ultrasounds, both confirmed my bladder is not emptying. I have had one damn painful cystoscopy where bladder and prostate were normal, but the doc found a constriction at the opening of my penis. He said that might be the issue. Flash forward to today, nine months have passed and was given a medial stick to shove up there every night, stick pee profusely durning the day and at least once at night no matter how little I drink, nothing works. Going for a 2nd cystoscopy on feb 5 2013 for an update.

Nov 4, 2012 · urethral stricture and surgery in Men's Health

I’m 38 as well and was diagnosed with urethral stricture at the age of 37 by a bloody painful cystoscopy. The stricture is at the tip of my penis going 2 inches deep. He gave me a plastic stick to use every night to shove up there. He says it should open in a year. Its been 9 months with no improvement. When I urinate, 2 streams come out. But the main issue is that my bladder will not fully empty causing me to wake up in the middle of the night. Has anyone had surgery for this? Has anyone tried anything else?

Jul 19, 2012 · IBS in Digestive Health

I’m in the same boat, changing diet really helped, but stress is also a major factor. Stress is always a trigger for me. I do eat high fiber cereals in the morning with soy, as I find milk can irritate. My doctor prescribes dicetel to help out with the symptoms. Stay away from greasy crap and try not to over eat. I find over eating is also another trigger.
