Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I look forward to working with you.
How many days ago was your last dose of radiation?
Why did you have a catheter placed to begin with?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
radiation ended one week ago. The catheter was inserted because of swelling from the radiation and was in place for approx five weeks and was removed four days ago

Can you clarify exactly what your question is regarding your situation?
Are you on Flomax for your prostate or any other prostate medications?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I am on Flomax and Avodart and saw palmetto (for years). I have visiting nurse saying "since I'm voiding" disregarding the small amount and the extreme pain while doing so and offering no relief. Dr the same. What else can be going on in there to cause the spasms each time I arise from sitting and causing convulsive stoppage of urine into and along the urethra, bad pain right to the end of the urethra. I do no want another catheter.

The pain and forced voiding was no different during the last days of the urethra....
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
That should read "last days of the catheter". Sorry.

This is taking too long to be of any value to me now. Your service is as unhelpful as the dr/nurse. Please cancel my credit card info. I must leave the building.
