I am 71 yr.old male with enlarged prostate. Ive had difficulty

Resolved Question:

I am 71 yr.old male with enlarged prostate. I've had difficulty passing urine for years. I went to the ER last night unable to pass urine and they inserted a Foley catheter. I don't know what size. As it was inserted it was immediately excruciatingly painful. As I screamed with pain the male nurse pushed it on in. That was approximately 20 hrs. ago and it is still extremely painful. Is this normal? Is there anything I should do?

HI,

Thanks for your question.

No this is not normal at all.

Its strong possibility that he have caused some damage to your urethra. You should visit ER if for evaluation as you may need antibiotics to prevent infection and may need stronger pain killers. All depends on the findings. Later you may need urologist's consultation.

Till you visit you can take OTC TAB ALEVE for pain.


I hope this helps you.

I plan to contact a urologist Monday. Should I do anything before then?
Expert:  Dr. Hasan replied 5 years ago.
Ideally speaking you should visit ER.

If for any reason you want to try something before that, you can take Tab Aleve twice daily. Its over the counter and will help you with pain.


I hope this helps you.
