Lack of pressure when urinating



Recommended Posts

Before surgery I could pee like a race horse , now...not so much. must be reduced volume in liquid. As a former beer drinker I got in north of 64 oz of liquid a day. Anyone similar to this post op?

Sounds like BPH, it's age related and very common in men. Treated by tamsulosin (generic for Flomax).

Thanks, I will ask my doc about it. Strange thing is it started right after surgery. Yesterday/ day 5 post op, I had improved pressure. Nurse told me it take a while for all of those organs to wake up.

that's what I was thinking - or dehydration (which can also happen after surgery)

Thanks...Hard to believe it was dehydration even though I thought about it. I have exceeded Water intake every day. That includes surgery day. I have been under for several surgeries and never had a mouth that dry when I woke up! Had to be dehydration that day.

I’m not sure about your Bladder/prostate but I’d think it’s the much less Fluid intake you are getting. I pee WAY less than before-even years out. Ask your surgeon./doctor They are there to help.

It is not unusual for some people to have a more difficult time urinating after anesthesia. As long as you are still able to go, the pressure issue should resolve itself pretty quickly.

Tim. I had the same issue after surgery. Took over a week to get back to normal. I did not like it at all.
