thank-you for your reply and will answer your questions in order,
before surgery I was having usual problems with urinating associated with an enlarged prostate, no pain,and having to get up maybe twice in the night.
When the catheter is removed there is no undue pain but i get no urge to pass urine at all apart if really forcing I get a small amount to come thru.
does give me pain to try and void
i am not a diabetic
The surgery was given with a spinal anaesthetic no other spinal problems
I have not been told about a Urodynamic study
, no other spinal problems
Thank-you for your reply to my enquiry Dr. Tharun. Seems that I just need to be patient but will certainly fololw up the option you suggest about the urodynamic study. It does seem however that perhaps i should have had a little more information given to me re. the possible outcome of the proceeduer i received, the thought of needing these self catheterisations is rather scary.
