Hello: I am 72. I have metastatic prostate cancer and bladder cancer which was treated with BCG.
For the past 2 months I have been having episodes of severe pain at the end of my penis (10 out of 10) and an inability to urinate. Indwelling catheters do not work for me after 2 or 3 days.
I have found that intermittent catheters work to relieve the urine from the bladder and relieve the pain. However, I am now having to catheterize 2 or 3 times a day as the condition worsens.
The urologist has left me unsatisfied as to what is causing this condition. I currently have no uti but have recently.
Questions. Why am I getting these spasms? Why the severe Pain?
Is there any treatment people have found effective? Medicine to relieve the spasms and pain? Surgical procedures? Can this condition go away on it's own?
Thanks for any advice.
