I contacted this while in the service in 1957. I was overseas and drinking a lot. in 2002 was told I had prostate cancer and received the radiation seed implants. then in 2011 my PSA started to rise. after a series of testing they say the cancer has not spread. Then my wife broke her knee cap and I have had to do double duty. and due to the additional stress and work I started having more trouble peeing. Doctor has giving me different medication but nothing has worked. I do not have any discharge but I do have all the same systems as before with the burning and all that. Now just almost looking at water I have to pee but when I do it just dribbles out and takes me a long time to relieve myself. (That is about 2-3 minutes.) So I have heard that Non-spec can return due to stress and or working to hard. Is there anything I can do to get my Doctor to test me with or can I check my own blood test to see if anything is wrong?
Tell the Dr you are concerned and want to be tested just to ease your mind. Dribbling, urgency, urine retention-taking a long time to empty the bladder, frequency-needing to pee often, and burning can all be symptoms of an enlarged and possibly inflamed prostate but he should test you just to be certain. You might also ask to see a urologist (bladder specialist) if you are not already seeing one. Dont be afraid to speak up and ask your Dr to test you. I really dont see why this would be a problem given your history. Keep in mind though that it may just be all related to your prostate issues and not the nonspecific urethritis.
