Please does anyone have any idea what could possibly be wrong with my husband. It started a few weeks back...he thought he might have an infection, he said he felt as though he hadn't emptied his bladder completely and that he felt as though he was constantly wetting himself (very distressing although I understand that we are only talking about the occasional dribble). He isn't in any pain, can pass urine with no probs, no blood in urine.
He went to Docs and his blood tests all came back normal.
He has now been refered to the hospital (urology dept).....this app is several weeks away and I'm going out of my mind with worry.
We havn't had sex for weeks...he says he feels dirty and says that he wants to resolve the problem first.
Please does anyone know what this could possibly be?

Oh and if he stays off alcohol and caffeine and just drinks cranberry juice it improves (doesn't go away)

  • I hope you got it sorted now?If not, just keep on trying (go to another doctor, run more tests, etc...).Nothing should be so painful/embarrassing/discomforting to affect your life like that
