    Would also like some good info on this. My 58 year old bladder sometimes drives me nuts. Always at the most inconvenient times. Bill

    I know the feeling. I know where every public bathroom is within a 30 mile radius of the house.

    Getting old isn't as much fun as I thought it would.

    Jon, do not fear the Cysco, it is not that bad at all. This procedure will eliminate a lot of possible conditions and allow your urologist to select the next course of treatment.

    Two guys at my club had the procedure in the morning and shot the same night. That is really not recommended and I only mention it to ease your mind. The only usual aftereffect is a little burning while urinating and that does not last long, should be gone by the following day.

    Get it checked the bore scope up it doesn't hurt very much

    Last year one morning I woke up took my Lasix, and went to the shop, in while I had to go, Lasix makes you do that, and couldn't no matter how hard I pushed, went and got my wife we went to the ER,by the I was in agony, felt like my bladder was going to burst, they ran a Foley catheter up there and drained just about 1/2 gallon (1.75 ml to be exact) of blood and urine

    They weren't real sure what caused it, they think it was caused by when they took my prostate out or the radiation afterwords

    But trust me we will keep a Foley catheter in stock at all times I will never go through that again

    At 71 I have needed to get my stuff checked for years and I also think now it is about time . I had many years of different problems since I was 27 ?? My mornings start of with a huge mug of Tea and thats when it all starts . Every 1-1 1/2 hrs I have to pee . If I dont drink tea I can go a long time from peeing . At night I`m up every 2 hours then at 2 AM I may dose off for 4 hrs . I`m not a beer drinker but if I was , I`m sure I wouldn`t get any sleep . I have 2 great urologists near by but none in my Network . Many have dropped out of United Health Care in the last 6 months with is puzzling to me . So to get the best I will have to pay out of pocket which could be a large sum of cash that I really don`t have ?? The Bourbon , Whiskey and Tequela just isn`t doing the job ??? I figured the more I drank the smaller everything would get but only 1 thing got smaller !

    Why not put a hose clamp on your spigot?

    That way you would loosen it only when it is convenient!

    Dad always says an old man should never pass up a free meal and a bathroom.

    Go get some palmetto berries and boil them to a tea to drink. They are supposed to be good for the prostate. Might help - might not. what the hell - give it a try - it will not hurt,

    Have you guys had your blood sugar tested? Diabetes causes frequent urination.

    My problem is I don't have any pressure anymore. Durring the day when I'm active things are fairly normal. But at night I have to get up a couple of times and just stand their till it finaly drains. No pressure at all. Dang that takes a while. Buy the time I'm done I'm wide awake. I do get alot of loading done after that. Then I fall to sleep. Wild Bill

    May I suggest that you find a female urologist with great big tits. If you're gonna be miserable, it might as well be fun.

    WS-1 I think you are missing the point. Shouldn't any of your doctors be female with big 'uns? Bill

    Jono I can't help you but with all the pissers and moaners on TDW, I'm surprised someone didn't have a solution.

    Doda probably gave you the answer. I had the same problem. The urologist said prostate surgery would help. He was right. I had the surgery and everything is back to normal.
