While peeing my urine comes out in two streams. What is the reason of this problem?

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
Bifurcated stream of urine could possibly be due to urethral stricture, which is one of the commonest causes. It is possible that the scarring could be blocking the outlet causing the stream to split and deviate, thus causing the other discomfort. It could also be due to a condition called prostatism, in which an enlarged prostate gland compresses on the urethra causing bifurcation of urine. Consult a urologist for the same.

Is prostate problems may be developed due to sleeplessness for more than 10 years.

DNB (Urology), MS, MBBS

No lybrate-user. Sleeplessness does not affect your prostate. But sleep is a very important part of daily routine and deficiency of it can affect many body functions.

Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. Well, did you ever go through a urine analysis/ culture? Your symptoms may be because of a chronic bacterial infection, of the urinary tract too. As I understand, you are currently being treated with antibiotics for H. Pylori infection. For the time being, just keep your diet healthy & balanced and keep up an active lifestyle. A Mediterranean diet, with lots of deep leafy greens and seasonal fruits, can help. Also include more of fresh turmeric and tomatoes in your diet. You can take 200 ml of fresh and unsweetened cranberry juice daily. Stay well hydrated too, consume at least 8 to 10 glasses of clean & filtered water daily. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

Sir my wife creatinine is now 10.4 what is the right cure for while dylisis is not running.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Vadodara
Sandeep Ji... Cure is a very big term to use especially for the disease so progressed... But for your relief I would suggest you to try homoeopathic treatment... there are chances that gradually she may not require dialysis... but as an Initial target we should aim for symptomatic relief, decrease in frequency of Dialysis, and improvement of general health... And I am sure homoeopathic medicine can do that.. Even if you have done homoeopathic treatment and couldn't find the results... don't loose hope in it.. It does no harm so safe to take with the ongoing treatment.. There are some excellent remedies like Equisetum, Alfalfa, Zingiber which has shown excellent result in such conditions...

Sir I am suffering from increase in urinal acid my feet is paining alot after ek or two hours of continuous sitting please you should tell me what precautions I should do.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, protein is one of the most vital nutritional substances which are required for human body. Almost every high protein diet contains purine. This purine produces uric acid on oxidation. Excess uric acid is accumulated at the joints of human beings as urate salts. This accumulation of urate salts lead to pain & swelling of those affected joints & this condition is clinically known as gout. You should avoid high protein rich diet like mutton, chicken, beef, eggs, sea fish, spinach, garden pea, tomato, lentils etc. Also you need to take homoeopathic mother tincture urtica urens q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to dissolve the accumulated excess urate salts from the joints.

What To Expect Post An Enlarged Prostate Surgery?

What To Expect Post An Enlarged Prostate Surgery?

Enlarged prostate surgery is a very common type of surgery that many have to undergo nowadays. An enlarged prostate causes many health problems including urinary tract obstructions and urinary tract infections. It may also lead to the passing of blood via urine. Thus, enlarged prostate must be treated as soon as possible as neglect may lead to prostate cancer and its associated health issues. There are various types of prostate surgeries that a doctor performs on his/her patients. However, of late, radical prostatectomy is the most popular of them all.

What is Radical Prostatectomy?

This process can be handled in two ways. Firstly, the prostate can be reached through an incision in the abdomen. This would help the doctor work with precision and carefully avoid all the other nerves and muscles in the area the operation take places. The prostate is examined and any nodule or lymph formed over it is carefully removed. The advantage of this surgery is that the patient is less likely to suffer from any erectile problems post- surgery. The second option would be to make an incision between the scrotum and the anus. This process is best for those who are obese. The surgery is performed quickly and there is less loss of blood. Furthermore, the healing time is less too.

How To Recover From The Surgery?

Like most other prostate operations, even in radical prostatectomy, you would have to wear a catheter till you recover completely. For a few days post the surgery your urine would be collected through a urine bag attached to the catheter. One might feel a little sore in his/her genitals after the surgery, but that is quite normal to occur. The soreness is caused due to the surgery and the incisions made and would heal in a matter of a few days. Interestingly, since the urethra plays an important role in this surgery, the catheter has to be in place for at least two to three weeks but the patient can be discharged after a two to three night stay at the hospital. It is advised that the patient takes ample rest. But this does not mean all rest and no work. In fact, it is seen that patients can walk a little and even go back to a normal diet within a week to ten days of the operation. But regular checkups, till the urethra is healed, are compulsory.

Hence, these are some of the recovery procedures after an enlarged prostate surgery. Such surgeries are quite common and heal quickly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
