    checking back in. Been on Iodone and supps for several months now. No improvement in urinary smptoms at all. And now I know the reason. I had a follow up appt with my urologist and we did an ultrasound of my prostate. It is perfect. In his words "a prostate any 20 year old would be proud to have" (I'm 52). My entire urinary tract appears to be perfect. No blockages whatsoever in the urethra.
    He is at a loss as to what is causing my symptoms (frequency, weak stream). He's never run into anyone like me and all he can suggest is to keep taking the alfuzosin.
    So that's why iodine did not help. I have a perfect prostate.

    Dave,
    Congratulations on your perfect prostate ! Yet you still have frequency & weak stream. That is a new one on me and I am also at a loss. If I discover anything on this set of symptoms, I'll post a message for you.

    Hi Dave,

    So glad it isn't your prostate!

    A weak urinary stream is one of the early signs of a blockage the urinary tract. It can be from a scar in the urethra which we refer to as a stricture. It occurs most commonly in men, who are in their fifties. There are other causes that can be treated such as what we call a bladder neck obstruction which is in a different location than the prostate, but actually, on top of the prostate right at the neck of the bladder.

    Bladder Control And The Prostate (Incontinence)

    Hope this helps.

    t2t,
    >>I had a follow up appt with my urologist and we did an ultrasound of my prostate.

    It would seem to me that any urologist would (or should) spot these items easily. How can a man who spends his life working with the prostate miss such obvious problems? Do you think Dave's urologist is incompetent?
    Does he need a 2nd opinion? I'm not even a urologist and I know of strictures & bladder necks. How could a trained urologist miss these?

    The more I learn about what doctors tell their patients, the more furious I get. The ULTIMATE OUTRAGE is doctors telling my neighbors that they must learn to live with their fibrocystic breast pain, or CUT THEM OFF !

    T2T, I think that you and I should have become doctors.

    Here is a nice article on Overactive Bladder. The need to urinate when there is nothing wrong with the prostate and could be the bladder itself or nerves controlling the bladder. Could be a bladder infection. Dave, there are thousands of hits in Google for Overactive Bladder. Maybe you can show some of these articles to your urologist, sometimes doctors need our help.

    Dave, if it's likely to be a nerve problem, why don't you ask Dr. Kruse about it? He's a neurosurgeon and might be able to point you in a direction to go. Join his forum, and there is a section called Ask Jack where he answers questions. Make it short and succinct, he tends to skim through very long passages. He usually gives you an answer, and then closes the thread, so no follow up.

    Hi Grizz,

    If the doctor did check for these other things then my next question would be what other prescribed medications is Dave on?
    (actually this is the first question a doctor should ask)... a lot easier to stop a medication to see if it is the culprit than do all those tests!

    Some other drug's side effect, could be suspect if it isn’t the bladder or nerve damage.

    "Coreg" and or maybe the statin I used to be on (I quit them at the same time, on my own) caused me to constantly get choked on food.

    I got a very small piece of steak stuck in my throat and I had to be put to sleep for the doctor to get it out. I suffered with this severe swallowing problem for almost 5 years and am "cured" after stopping those two meds.

    I even had doctors watch on a TV monitor as I swallowed and they said I was symptomatic for a permanent swallowing disorder and would have to eat tiny pieces of food the rest of my life.

    Ugh, I had to take the barium swallow test several times after my stroke to prove I was capable of eating whole foods. There is a little 'shelf' in the back of your throat that is supposed to dump any food or liquids down your esophogus. My stroke has interupted the signal for it. I still sometimes get choking or coughing attacks just by not paying attention to the spit in my mouth. And I hack until I can get another swallow organized. They kept me on softened foods for several weeks, until I was able to prove myslf choking to death-proof.

    T2T,
    You are RIGHT ON !
    All of those drugs prescribed by doctors have NASTY side effects. If you want to be shocked, do a google search of Viagra Side Effects. The side effects of Viagra are HORRIFIC ! Fortunately most people don't suffer from these side effects.

    THIS JUST CAME IN:
    Blood Pressure Drug linked to Celiac Disease ! ! !
    the popular blood pressure drug Benicar (olmesartan) often causes patients to develop symptoms of Celiac disease that later subside when the medication is ceased.

    MORE JUST CAME IN !
    Diabetes Drug Avandia linked to heart attacks:
    The highest-ever award in an Israeli class-action suit against a drug manufacturer – NIS 12.1 million – was recently made under a compromise agreement reached between a diabetes patient and GlaxoSmithKline, the maker of Avandia.

    The suit had been filed by a diabetic who claimed that GSK had concealed data from the public that showed the drug, which is used to treat people with type-2 diabetes, increased the risk of dying from a heart attack.

    Glaxo SmithKine HORROR story!
    Drug giant GlaxoSmithKline agreed to cough up a record $3 billion penalty to settle sweeping US criminal and civil probes for illegally peddling many of its most popular meds for more than a decade.
    The charges included bribing doctors, cooking safety data, rigging prices and pushing potent drugs on teens for risky and unapproved uses. Some of the misuses turned life-threatening, according to officials.

    The feds said the company, in one key scheme, lavished doctors with luxury spa junkets, gifts and millions in speaking fees in a conspiracy to boost prescriptions for the antidepressant pill Wellbutrin. The firm fraudulently claimed it also worked for weight-loss, curbing substance abuse and treating sexual dysfunction.


    Glaxo’s sales force even hawked the pricey drug to doctors as the “happy, horny, skinny pill,” concealing that it was never approved for any of those uses and likely was dangerous.
    Another antidepressant, Paxil, was fraudulently marketed to increase sales to children and teens, without disclosing it could trigger suicidal behavior.

    A total of nine drugs were targeted in the crackdown, including
    * Wellbutrin,
    * Paxil,
    * Advair,
    * Lamictal,
    * Zofran,
    * Imitrex,
    * Lotronex,
    * Flovent,
    * Valtrex
    * Avandia.
