I believe you should not be excessively concerned about residual urine unless it is more than 300 ml. If you fee like there is only" some" urine that comes our if you apply pressure after voiding is completed, you do not need medical help. The fact that you have a h/o multiple sclerosis since 2009 has nothing to do with your current problem. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

2-4 pus cell in the urine is ok . nothing to worry about or the reason to make you unfit. too many puss cells in the urine can mean a urinary tract infection, a sexually transmitted disease, kidney infection, or abscess near the kidney. if the pus cells are more then 5 then you may need antibiotic to reduce the level of the pus cells .Take care

Uric acid builds up when the body makes too much of it or fails to excrete it. It is a waste product resulting from the metabolism of food. The level of uric acid in your blood can become elevated if your body produces too much or if it doesn't efficiently dispose of it. It is very important to keep your diet in check to avoid food that increases the Uric Acid content in the body. Symptoms of uric acid · Excruciating pain in the foot or big toe. · Difficulty walking. · Waking up from sleep due to foot pain. · Occasionally feeling pain in the knee and ankle. · Limited ability to move. · Persistent itching around the big toe joint. · Gritty accumulations of uric acid crystals called tophi that appear on the joints near the elbows, knees, fingers and toes. Foods You Should Eat If You Are A High Uric Acid Patient Diet Tips for High Uric Acid Patients • Lower fat intake as excess fat reduces normal excretion of uric acid. • Liberal fluid intake to keep the urine dilute. • Restriction or elimination of alcohol. Rajmah Via Shutterstock What to avoid • Shell fishes, red meat, minced meat, meat extracts, organ meats, fishes (sardine, roe, makeral). • Whole pulses (masur, rajmah, chana, chole etc.). Other dals are allowed. • Vegetables and fruits - green peas, spinach, french beans, brinjal, cauliflower, mushroom, chickoo, custard apple. Diet rules • Use less salt while cooking. Avoid adding salt while cooking rice or in chapatti dough. • Use adjuncts like tomato, vinegar, cocum, amchur, lime juice, curd, pepper powder to make the food cooked with less salt palatable. • Remove the salt shaker from the table. • Avoid salted nuts/biscuits, papads, pickles, chutneys. • Avoid excess consumption of processed and preserved foods; eg. Bakery products. • Caution - Do not overdo on salt substitutes as that might cause an electrolyte imbalance. Tomatoes Recommended Foods 1. Fresh cherries, strawberries, blueberries and other red-blue berries. 2. Bananas. 3. Celery. 4. Tomatoes. 5. Vegetables including cabbage and parsley. 6. Foods high in bromelain (pineapple). 7. Foods high in vitamin C (red cabbage, red bell peppers, tangerines, mandarins, oranges, potatoes) 8. Low-fat dairy products. 9. Complex carbohydrates (breads, cereals). 10. Chocolate, cocoa. 11. Coffee, tea.">Hello- Diet Tips for High Uric Acid Patients • Lower fat intake as excess fat reduces normal excretion of uric acid. • Liberal fluid intake to keep the urine dilute. • Restriction or elimination of alcohol.

I am a 62 year male. I had a urinary tract infection recently and cured with a course of antibiotics. While investigating doctor had advised a cy scan of abdomen. The report is normal except that the urinary bladder is showing a diverticula of size 15x7.5x13.8cm with a communication measuring 2.7 cm. It also shows a calculus of 2 mm there is np mass lesion in bladder or diverticulam. The diverticulum is not an acquired one my doctor is of the view that there is nothing to be anxious.

Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS), MS - Urology, MBBS
Urologist, Ahmedabad
Dear , sorry my opinion is different than that of your doctor. I think that you have bladder outflow obstruction and and the diverticulum is secondary but is large with a wide mouth and 2 mm stone could pass on its own. As there is no mass in it, it is better. However I think you must have some symptoms passing urine or frequency or urgency or slow stream and scan must show increased thickness of bladder wall thickness and some postvoid residual urine. It would be immense help you can post films of the scan. Uroflowmetry would also help. I think you may get repeated attacks of uti and if so one should consider surgery of either prostate or bladder neck. Please post the details as requested.

Hi lybrate-user, go for renal function test immediately. Also you need to get echo 2d to be done to know ejection fraction. Get back with your reports and just let me know what all medications you take. Kindly elaborate what problem you are having exactly.
