I EVENTUALLY HAD A FOLLOW UP WITH THE URO, IM STILL NOT
SURE WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME, BUT I KNOW THERES SOMETHING WRONG BECAUSE MY BODY DOESNT FEEL RIGHT. HE MENTIONED THAT MY PROSTATE FEELS BETTER AND TO CONTINUE ALL THE REMAINING LEVAQUIN AND ELMIRON. NO STD WAS FOUND THROUGH THE URINE TESTS. THEN I WAS SENT ON MY WAY. I WAS ABLE TO URINATE, BUT MY BLADDER WOULNDNT FEEL COMPLETLY EMPTY STILL. I ALSO HAD A BURNING FEELING IN MY PROSTATE AREA, BY THIS TIME. NOT SURE WHERE, THOUGH.

ITS THE MIDDLE OF FEBRUARY AND MY PROBLEM STILL EXIST
I HAVE TO SEE ANOTHER DOCTOR CLINIC BECAUSE MY PREVIOUS DOCTOR COULD NO LONGER SEE ME DUE TO THEIR CLINIC NOT EXCEPTING MY INSURANCE ANY LONGER. I COMPLAINED TO MY NEW DOCTOR ABOUT MY PROBLEM AND HE CHECKS MY PROSTATE AND TELLS ME I HAVE BPH (AN ENLARGED PROSTATE.) THE DOC THEN PRESCRIBED ME A PELVIC MUSCLE RELAXER CALLED DOXAZOSIN. THEN, I GO MY WAY.

WITH THIS MYSTERIOUS CONDITION AFFECTING MY LIFE A GREAT DEAL, I DECIDED TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT, WHICH I THOUGHT LATER WAS A BAD IDEA. THAT WOULD BE ACCUPUNCTURE. I GO TO THIS PLACE WITH A FEVER ALREADY EXPLAINING MYSELF TO THE ACCU-SPECIALIST. BEFORE I ARRIVED THERE, I STOPPED AT A STORE TO USE THE RESTROOM. I OBSERVED ON HOW THE WAY MY URINE PASSED. IT TOOK TIME, BUT THE FLOW WAS ALRITE AND THEN HALF WAY TOWARDS THE END, THE STREAM WAS REAL SLOW. I URINATED A COOL AMOUNT. MY BLADDER WAS SOME WHAT EMPTY THIS TIME. BEFORE I GOT ON THE ACCU-TABLE I USED THE RESTROOM ONE MORE TIME. IT LOOKED THE SAME WAY WHEN I URINATED PREVIOUS. I GET ON THE TABLE TO LIE ON MY BACK, ALOT NEEDLES ARE THEN INSERTED OVER MY BLADDER AND MY SIDE, WHILE A HEATING LAMP IS OVER THE NEEDLES MAKING MY BLADDER AREA FEEL EXTREMELY HOT. DURING THIS PROCESS I HAD A WEIRD SENSATION THAT I HAVE TO USE THE RESTROOM, BUT IF I GO, I KNOW FOR A FACT NOTHING WOULD COME OUT. AFTER THE PROCEDURE I WAS GIVEN SOME HERBS TO BRING HOME AND BOIL TO DRINK. LEAVING THIS PLACE I NOTICED MY FEVER JUMPED UP A COUPLE OF NUMBERS ON THE THERMONITOR. I STILL HAD THAT WEIRD SENSATION TO URINATE, LIKE HOW I WAS LYING ON THAT TABLE. I WAITED UNTIL I GOT HOME.

I FINALLY TRY TO USE THE RESTROOM, BUT NOTHING WOULD COME OUT, SO I DECIDED TO BE PATIENT AND LEAVE THE RESTROOM TO PLAY A VIDEO GAME TO KEEP MY MIND BUSY FROM THIS SENSATION/URGE TO URINATE. ITS SUCH A DISTRACTION FEELING THE URGE, I FINALLY GET UP TO TRY AND USE THE RESTROOM AGAIN. FINALLY SOMETHING COMES OUT, BUT IT WAS JUST DRIPS,DRIPS, DRIPS. IM THINKING WHAT THE ***l. I NEVER EXPERIENCED HAVING ONLY DRIPS OF URINE TO COME OUT EVER MY ENTIRE LIFE. MY BLADDER IS STILL FULL. THE DRIPS STILL CONTINUES, THEN A VERY WEAK FLOW WILL FOLLOW THROUGH BEHIND THAT. I WAS HAVING ALOT OF DIFFICULTY URINATING ALL NIGHT.

THE NEXT DAY 3/8/06 I WENT TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM FOR THE SECOND TIME TO WEAR A ARUBA TYPE CATHETER. THIS TIME I WORE IT FOR 6-DAYS. TOOK 10 MORE LEVAQUINS (500MG).

SAW MY URO 3/22/06 BECAUSE I WAS STILL HAVING TROUBLE WITH THIS URINATION PROBLEM. THE DRIPS OF URINE ALSO CONTINUES, AS I FIRST START TO PASS URINE IN THE BEGINNING. I KNOW THAT ITS NORMAL FOR URINE TO DRIP AT THE END OF THE URINATION PROCESS, BUT NOT THE BEGINNING. THE URO THEN PRESCRIBED ME TO TAKE SMZ/TMP MEDICATION FOR 6 WEEKS. THE URO MENTIONTED THAT I HAVE SOME TYPE OF PROSTATITIS. BY THIS TIME I DECIDED TO STOP TAKING ELMIRON ON MY OWN FOR INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS BECAUSE OF ALL THESE OTHER MEDICATIONS I WAS TAKING. THE URO ALSO REQUESTED FOR ME TO GET A SECOND OPINION AT A BIGGER FACILITY BECAUSE HE WASN’T SURE WHY I KEPT GOING INTO RETENTION.

SAW MY URO FOR A FOLLOW UP 4/11/06 I STILL HAVE A PROBLEM NOT COMPLETELY EMPTYING MY BLADDER. I WOULD HAVE A STOP AND GO STREAM.(INTERRUPTED ALWAYS) ALSO HAD SOME DRIBBLING A LONG, LONG TIME AFTER I WOULD BE DONE URINATING. EVEN WHEN I BE HALF A SLEEP, I NOTICE DRIPS OF URINE WOULD COME OUT, TOO. NOTHING WAS DONE AND I WAS SENT MY WAY.

VISITED THE DOCTORS CLINIC FOR URGENT APPOINTMENT 4-15-06, MY PROSTATE AREA FEELS UNCOMFORTABLE, IM PASSING LITTLE URINE WITH A WEAK STREAM, DRIBBLING, STOP AND GO WITH AN INTERRUPTED FLOW. MY BLADDER DOES NOT FEEL EMPTY AT ALL. THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED ME TERAZOSIN. THEN SENT ME MY WAY.

LATER THAT NIGHT I ENDED UP GOING TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM FOR THE THIRD TIME. I WORE A CATHETER FOR 4 AND 1/2 DAYS.

I FINALLY GOT TO SEE MY SECOND OPINION URO AT A BIGGER FACILITY 5/2/06. EXPLAINED TO THE URO MY SITUATION , THE URO CHECKED MY PROSTATE AND THEN PRESCRIBED ME WITH CIPRO 500MG AND 600MG IBPROPHEN TO TAKE FOR A MONTH. THEY HAD ME URINATE IN A FLOW MACHINE AND THEN CHECKED MY BLADDER. HAD ABOUT 10 C/C OF URINE REMAINING. THEY SAID IT WAS NORMAL ,THEN SENT ME MY WAY.

IN JUNE SOMETIME I WENT TO THE DOCTORS CLINIC BECAUSE OF MY BLADDER BEING FULL AND MY BACK/ABDOMEN HURTS. PRESCRIBED ME TO TAKE MORE CIPRO UNTIL MY FOLLOW UP WITH MY UROLGIST. THEN SENT ME MY WAY.

06/19/06 WENT TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM FOR THE 4TH TIME. WORE A CATHETER FOR 6 DAYS. I EVENTUALLY SAW MY URO AT THE BIGGER FACILITY SOMETIME THAT WEEK AND THEY GAVE ME SOME SELFCATHETERS FOR MY RETENTION, SO I WOULDNT HAVE TO KEEP GOING TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM . ALSO PRESCRIBED ME SOME VALIUMS AND SOME MORE PYRIDIUM.

7/11/06 GOT SOME CT SCANS DONE ON MY ABDOMEN/BACK AND URETHRAS.

7/21/06 GOT A ULTRASOUND ON MY PROSTATE, EVERYTHING APPEARED TO BE NORMAL. MY PROSTATE WAS A SIZE 12 AND NORMAL PROSTATE IS 20.

8/21/06 GOT SOME MORE TEST DONE ON ME LIKE ANOTHER CYSTOSCOPY AND A URODYNAMICS TEST WHILE IM AWAKE THIS TIME AT THIS BIGGER URO FACILITY. NO URETHRAL STRICTURE OR OBSTRUCTION WAS FOUND. THEY MENTIONED TO ME THAT I DONT HAVE INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS, AND MY BLADDER LOOKS OK AND THE MAIN REASON I GO INTO RETENTION IS BECAUSE I CANT RELAX THE PELVIC MUSCLE. IF THAT WAS THE CASE, I WOULD HAVE BEEN SUFFERING WITH THIS PROBLEM LAST YEAR, THE YEAR BEFORE, AND THE YEAR BEFORE THIS. WHY ALL OF A SUDDEN??? YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHH RIGGGHT!!! THEY PRESCRIBED ME WITH FLOMAX THIS TIME.

9/6/06 VISITED MY DOCTOR CLINIC, METIONED TO ME THAT HE GOT THE RESULTS FROM THE CT SCAN FROM 2 MONTHS PREVIOUS AND THAT I HAVE A COUPLE OF KIDNEY STONES. WHAT THE ***l!! I KNEW I HAD SOMETHING WRONG WITH MY ABDOMEN/BACK. I KNOW FOR A FACT THESE KIDNEY STONES ARE FROM ALL THESE TIMES OF GOING INTO RETENTION.

9/27/06 UNTIL THIS DAY MY SYMPTOMS ARE JUST GETTING MORE WORSE AS THE DAY PASSES ME BY. IAM SEVERELY DEPRESSED , STRESSED OUT AND MISRABLE WITH THIS URINARY PROBLEM. BELIEVE ME, I WAS SEEING A THERAPIST BEFORE AND I NOW DECIDED TO CONTINUE SEEING A THERAPIST. I WAS NEVER LIKE THIS 10 MONTHS AGO, I WAS ONLY URINATING FREQUENTLY WHILE MY URINE TOOK A LITTLE TIME TO PASS, BUT MY BLADDER FELT EMPTY ENOUGH TO ENJOY LIFE MORE. NOW, I SELF CATHERIZE MYSELF 3 TO 4 TIMES A DAY, WHEN I CANT URINATE ON MY OWN AND I GO INTO RETENTION. WITH THIS URINARY FREQUENCY THAT I HAVE AND NOT BEING ABLE TO COMPLETELY EMPTY MY BLADDER , ITS GETS VERY FRUSTRATING BECAUSE I CANT CONSTANTLY USE THE SELFCATHETER. SO MY BODY/BLADDER STARTS TO FEEL SICK BECAUSE OF URINE BEING BACKED UP AND SITTING IN MY BLADDER. WITH ALL THESE MIXED DIAGNOSIS THAT ALL THESE DOCTORS/UROLGIST GIVE ME FROM HAVING INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS, SHRUNKEN BLADDER, BPH, PROSTATITIS, AND NOT BEING ABLE TO RELAX MY PELVIC MUSCLE, LEAVES ME WITH NOTHING BUT TOTAL CONFUSION. IM HONESTLY LOSING FAITH IN THE MEDICAL SYSTEM AND HOW THEY WORK. FOR EXAMPLE, LIKE TAKING ALL THESE DIFFERENT MEDICATIONS IS THE ANSWER TO MY URINARY PROBLEM, AND TO IGNORE THE REAL UNDERLINING CAUSE TO WHAT IS CAUSING THIS PROBLEM. ALSO LETTING ME KNOW TWO MONTHS LATER THAT I HAVE A COUPLE OF KIDNEY STONES. I TRULY KNOW AND FEEL THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH ME INTERNALLY, SO I WILL CONTINUE TO SEE DIFFERENT DOCTORS/UROLOGISTS FOR ANOTHER OPINION UNTIL THEY FIND OUT WHAT IS TRULY WRONG WITH ME/CAUSING ALL THESE SYMTOMS, BEFORE THIS SLOWLY KILLS ME. IM A 25 YEAR OLD MALE WHO ENDURES SO MUCH PAIN TRAMATICALLY WITH THIS SITUATION MENTALLY/EMOTIONALLY/AND PHYSICALLY UNTIL THIS DAY.

IF THERES ANYONE GOING THROUGH THIS PROBLEM OR SOMETHING SIMILAR, YOU CAN CONTACT ME AT GEM1N178@YAHOO.COM (THE 1 IN THE GEM1N1 ARE ONES & NOT REGULAR I..) JUST IN CASE YOU GET CONFUSED???
