In an attempt to be complete, I give the entire history:
1/10/2012 - Had the laser treatment done. Doc says everything went well. I bled heavily on urination (blood red urine) for about 10 days after surgery. Had urgency/frequency - he ordered Detrol-LA. Had bad reaction to it and he changed it to Ditropan.
~1/20/2012 Started getting burning feeling on urination - UTI. Was put on Bactrim. May have helped, not sure.
~2/23/2012 UTI symptoms worsen - Put on Doxycycline, burning subside for awhile. Eventually returns.
3/19/2012 UTI symptoms worsen more - Now he has me on Cipro, and the burning with urination is 85% less in just a few days.
Due to the regular UTI symptoms the doc thinks all my problems are infection related. I don't think so. Here is the part that I can't seem to get resolved, and appears to be getting worse as times goes by:
I have POSITIONAL urgency/incontinence. I know what urgency feels like due to a UTI - been there and felt it. At night I don't feel the pain, when I do get up - straight to the bathroom with minimal problems. If I'm leaning back in a chair - a little worse, but still manageable. If I'm standing the problem is huge. I can have just voided, and if standing, in a matter of a couple of minutes I feel 'what feels like' urine escaping the bladder. The result is pain on an order that I have never felt. There is unbelievable urgency. Here is the kicker - the less CCs I have to void the greater the pain. Extreme, grabbing onto anything I can find by the toilet not to far over while voiding sort of pain. If there is a large amount of urine to pass (which means I've been in a more or less laying down position) then to the bathroom, void, minimal problems. The pain appears to be in the prostate, as I get a stabbing sensation at the prostate with the intense burn, and at the tip of the penis a lot of pain too.
Anybody else experience this sort of thing more than 2 months after surgery, and how did it get fixed.
Desperate here, this is making me miss work and I actually peed myself last night after just getting off from work....lucky didn't happen there.
Thanks for any help!
Took me a long time to figure this out. It was Doxycycline induced neuropathy of the Pudendal nerve.
Hope this helps someone out in the future.
'Green Light PVP' 3 1/2 weeks ago. Now, I often have to go "URGENTLY". Just a little bit of volume. Pain, but mild. Usually after some activity, but everytime I drive someplace, and then get out of the car. I wear a pad when I go out, but often the urgency is so bad, I get messy. I was better off before surgery. Then, I was just slow, and made multiple trips per night. At least, I didn't wet myself. The Doctor said 'You get the procedure Wednesday, come back Friday for catheter removal, and its all over. What a crock of PooPoo!
