Avatar m tn Hi, How long have you been on the finasteride for baldness? Finasteride has certain side effects, one of which is erectile dysfunction. Even small amounts of finasteride can cause this side effect. Other medication for an enlarged prostate to minimize urinary frequency include tamsulosin. You can try Flomax or Urotel and see how you respond to these agents which work at the bladder level.
Avatar m tn Flomax can cause "floppy iris syndrome" (FIS). A small percentage of people on Flomax and a much much smaller % of people that were on Flomax in the past but not on it now have FIS. FIS can make surgery, usually cataract, more difficult as the pupil does not stay dilated. However FIS is now widely recognized and special techniques have been devised to deal with the floppy, contracting iris.

Avatar n tn Prior to the surgery the urologist explained all the side effects including retrograde ejeculation. I had problems not being able to urinate and it was found to be some obstruction at the bladderneck. The procedure went OK and after 8 weeks or so I returned to work as a heavy duty mechanic shop foreman. The procedure only did well for about 6 months when I ended up with the same problems. I was booked for a urodynamics test and it was found that I had a neurogenic bladder.
Avatar m tn I believe is important for you to do some research about your own health condition, on the drugs you are taking (drugs come with some of the side effects written on the papers that come inside the box). Also is important for you to know that there is something called holistic medicine, which uses healthier drugs and a healthier medicine. I have the same problem, but I masturbated from 20-50 or more times a day on my puberty and now on my 37 age from 2-10 times a day.
Avatar m tn There are strong non-narcotic pain meds that do work, but for side effects reasons, they are reluctant to hand out. The one that comes to mind is Toradol. It is supposed to be as potent as morphine, though I don't think its quite that strong, it does take the edge off enough, to pass a stone sometimes.

Sometimes, even 2 weeks isn't enough and blood still comes out. It seems the amount of time required to heal keeps increasing over the years. I find this part really hard to deal with. 3. When it happens, I always make sure I go urinate ASAP. The sooner the better because the blood clot gets bigger and stickier with time.
