Customer Question
I had sigmoid...

I had sigmoid colon resection surgery July 18. Have had a urinary retention problem and a catheter since July 21. I took urodynamics testing on August 15, and cannot get the results from my urologist. Asked for another doctor but don not have an appointment until Nov.

Doctor's Assistant: Is the condition chronic, or acute?

I don't know but would say chronic. I have had an enlarged prostrate for several years and taking alfuzosin and finasteride but don't think either worked.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Can't think of anything offhand

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
