Customer Question

Lately, my urine has been straw colar - apparently health, until the flow comes to an end when the last of the flow is very cloudy. I should mention that I urinate very frequently, day and night - I believe that I have prostate problems thru many years.
JA: Is the condition chronic, or acute?
Customer: I am not sure of the words and the meaning
JA: Is there anything else in your medical history you would like the urologist to know?
Customer: I have had an aortic valve replaced in 2002. I am now 73 years old

Hello and welcome. I'm Dr Chip

This is definitely a prostate problem with benign prostatic enlargement causing the frequent urination, but now you have prostatitis--a prostate infection but not an STD

You'll need to see your doctor for a urinalysis, digital prostate exam, and a course of an antibiotic like Septra or Cipro to clear this up.
