Thank you for your reply...I think perhaps by copying the question from this site I was not clear.My Bowel movement is not yellow..(?)..no bubbles..not real "floaty"..I still have my gallbladder.I do not feel the need to have a bowel movement after every meal...but
I can not urinate without a bowel movement. I am retaining urination even after that.
I have had two (2) TURPs (roto rooter) in a short time. I was told this would clear the path so the urination would be able to flow. Both procedures were quite traumatizing...There is no blockage.
I am only 57 and have had two TURPS, which I was told is usually found in men of age 70 or so.
However I can not urinate without a bowel movement.
What is connected to this action?
I have had a GI work up. I have had a colonostipy. I have had several cystographs(?) where a camera was inserted into my penis and up into the bladder to see if anything is there..there is not.
My doctor has put me on Flowmax which seems to help, although I have been off it a week and that has made this worse. I started Flowmax again today.
My fear is that I may need a complete bladder reconstruction...I have been told to avoid this procedure as it is dangerous.
It has been suggested there may be a problem with the sphinkter muscle...?
