Hello Dr Whitney I am a Urologist. Your symptoms of urgency going to frequency was from your going into retention"unable to void" The medications mentioned by the other doctor are alpha blockers Flomax and Uroxatral(Alfuzosin) and Rapiflo are the 3 newest. You should be on one of those before you get a voiding trial. I assume you have a Foley cath in for at least a week because your bladder has been overstretched like a balloon and will not work right away or be delayed. You may have to learn how to cath yourself. Another medication to go on is Finesteride which takes longer to work but over time will shrink the prostate. The bladder is liked a rubber ballooon when your younger like a glad trash bag when older you dump it out
