Hello, i am an 189 year old man who for a while now has had problems with initiating urine flow. This has been extremely frustrating as sometimes my bladder becomes full and i cannot get rid of the urine, thus causing pain. This is especially a problem when out drinking with friends as i frequently need to go to the toilet, but cannot urinate, resulting in me having to physically force my bladder closed in order to initiate urine flow. When the flow beigins, there are no further problems. This problem appears to occur randomly, where sometimes i have no problem at all, while at other times i am in pain from my bladder being so full, but i can still not urinate it out. I have seen my doctor about this and had a scan of my bladder and no apparent problems have so far been found. My urologist seems to be convinced that it is psychological, but i feel as if something is physically blocking it sometimes.

I am at the end of my tether and cannot cope with this problem anymore. Please can someone let me know if there is anything that I can do to solve this problem.
Thank you

  • Sorry for your pain man , I too have the same problem , and like yours , it comes and goes . I am 43 though so with you being only 19 , I would wonder . I have not had my checked though , I should , but don't have insurance . I would go back to the doctor and have him dig deeper into it . I would be interested in his findings . One could assume that its in your head , but I doubt it really . This is a common statement form doctors these days .Please post any results thjat you come up with .
