I'm 67 years old and I had a Hernia Surgery 6 weeks ago and

I'm 67 years old and I had a Hernia Surgery 6 weeks ago and since then I have had issues voiding my urine.I was released from the hospital right after surgery - as soon as I could void some urine, which I did (less than 50 ml) after a couple of tries.For the next couple of days, I continued to void only a small amount of urine even though I ate and drank normal amounts every day.I called my surgeon and complained to the nurse that I was in pain and could only void a small amount each time I tried. She told me to take the pain medication(which I was avoiding to take) to reduce my pain and if I could not void to contact my urologist. Since I could void (a little bit each time I tried) I took the medication and hoped for improvement. I spoke to the nurse a couple of days later and asked her to speak to the doctor. She asked me to tell her the questions and she would ask him and get back to me. She told me essentially the same thing she said before. In the meantime I started to pee in my pants at night.9 days after the surgery I went to my primary doctor who sent me immediately to a urologist. The urologist catheterized me (1,550 ml) and told me that I have an enlarged prostate (46 ml) and put me on Tamsulosin and Finasteride. Prior to my Hernia Operation, I had no issues urinating, except for a weak stream, urinating mostly 1-2 per night. (On AUA IPSS scale I scored 7).My following visits to him after 3 days, then after one week, and then after 3 more weeks have not produced better results. During this time, I have had the indwelling catheter in me since my first visit to the urologist. In the morning before each next visit, I removed the catheter and tried to void before I saw the urologist in the afternoon. Unfortunately, I could only produce less than 50 ml each time I tried. After the 3 days visit I had 800 ml when I was catheterized the Dr.'s office, after one week, 700 ml, and after 3 weeks 500 ml. Each time I was in great pain.He asked me to see him again in 2 weeks to discuss what to do next, one of the option being a laser surgery of prostate.JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?Customer: Do you think that I have an issue with overdistended bladder? Should I see a neurologist?JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: Thanks
