Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Is a full bladder visualized or felt by hand in lower abdomen?
Has he a painful sensation of full bladder?
Is there a dribble of urine or no urine at all?
Has he been diagnosed of enlarged prostate or cancer prostate earlier?
He feels pain when touched. The bladder is probably full. He doesn't feel the full sensation, just the feel the he needs to go every hour. There is dribble every here and there when he tries.
He is not diagnosed with enlarged prostate and cancer prostate. He has problem with lung capacity mainly.
You may do two more things at home to see if these can help him (apart from warm sitz bath);
1) Keeping a heating pad on the bladder region and giving him an Ibuprofen (Motrin), which relaxes the tense abdominal wall.
2) Ask him to try to void with a tap running side by side; sometimes this stimulates the bladder muscles.
If these measures are not helpful; he will need catheterization as this is most likely due to enlarged prostate (benign prostate hyperplasia) and he will have to go to ER for it.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
We already moved him to the bath tub. We will try the Ibuproben and then take him to the hospital.
You are welcome, Hannah.
