Anybody any ideas? xx
sorry if i sound stupid but does your hubby have pd i was a little confused by your post if your hubby already has pd then i am not sure, it could be connected to the pd, but if he has not got pd and you are asking if it may be a sign of pd i dont honestly know, he has seen the gp i take it has he had a catherter fitted to relieve the retention. sue.
For some people Parkinsons is known to cause urinary problems especially urgency and a feeling of incomplete emptying of the bladder. Its tied up with problems with our autonomic system. This reference may help.
Of course for men there is also prostate enlargement which is very common.
The doc can give your hubby tabs (contiflow).
Just wondered if anybody else was affeted this way.
Thanks again and good look all PD sufferes and carers
No! No change in tabs for over 18 months now! probably his age 60! and his prostate, so hope we can get it sorted and get rid of this cahteter and back to a "normal life" again xx
Hello sooo, I do have trouble with retention it only occurs when PD is giving me
a kicking,I also have Prostrate cancer, which of course can produce the same
symptoms ,this problem is in abeyance but not cured, I take drugs, the only treatment I can have , so make sure you find out as much as you possibly can as it could be caused by numerous defects.
My brother has Pakinson's and an enlarged prostate which has led to him having a catheter. He has been offered surgery but has been warned that sucess is not gauranteed ..... course there are risks.
Has anyone outb there any experience of prostate reduction?
Hello Auntie Val
I feel sorry for your Brother I was in a worrying situation 2 yrs ago,a similar but different situation, I could not have radio therapy as dyskie wouldnt let me be, I couldnt have chemo as I would have to stop all my parky drugs which would result in total paralysis, so I was offered GOSERELIN implants , these are adminstered by the nurse at the local surgery every 3 months and have stopped any further problems and my water works are 85 -90% efficent,I should also point out I had the TURPS operation which made a massive difference and so far x A/OK. incidently the implants are placed under the skin, no problem no pain, I am being treat for Prostate Cancer, which may or may not need a similar approach, but no harm in enquiring, SHY BAIRNS GET NOWT, as they say in GEORDIE LAND
I wish you well Val and your Brother of course, it would be the best christmas evey if your troubles were eased, good luck FED
I was diagnosed Sep 2010 with PD and a enlarged prostate for whch I had a TURPS operation. This was not successful in that the frequency to urinate remains often. Further the surgery caused a stricture (narrowing) in the pee pipe which I have to maintain pee pipe clearance by self catheterising twice weekly. Also due to flow in random directions it is necessary to sit down to pass urine! A sample of the tissue removed from the prostate indicated I have prostate cancer albeit low risk for which the present treatment is active surveillance.
In 2012 I had lumps appear in the groin, pee pie and penis which were found to be transient cancer cells from bladder cancer. I have had successfully chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment.
On the plus side the cancer took my mind of the PD!
Hello Aunty Val
I`ve picked up this post rather late but I can say my OH had prostate reduction and it has been entirely successful. The narrowing of the pee pipe followed by self catherisation has also been successful. We gradually reduced the frequency to about once a month and after a year were told to stop the catherisation all together.
Hope this is helpful
