6 months after turp have urinary retention again.

After 6 months of a successful turp, I have urinary retention.  I have some catheters left over and starting to self catheter again.  I must confess I am very resentful that I have retrograde ejaculation.  But this urinary retention is causing me more distress.

Is it possible to request another urologist at the medical center I had the turp done by a very young urologist.  I think an older urologist with more experience may give me better treatment and maybe some alternative procedure that may return my ability to ejaculate.  I have been told that sometimes the prostate grows back.  But I suppose the damage is permanent from my initial turp that destroys that part of the anatomy that allows semen to come out again.

I suppose the more important thing is too keep my urine not building up so my kidneys don't go bad.  Or perhaps my kidneys are now the problem.  I do feel pain and soreness in my back.  From what I gather this may indicate kidney failure or partial failure.  

I guess the first thing to do is get diagnosed again with tests.  Or I could have a neurogenic bladder, etc.    

I would be grateful for any reply from an expert at Med Help and advice.

Retrograde ejaculation indicates your ejaculate goes into your bladder instead of out your penis.  When I had to choose a new urologist, I found the youngest one I could find in a group.  My logic was the younger he was, the more up to date on the latest procedures and he would have the older doctors there for consultation if needed.

I have a neurogenic bladder as the result of a spinal cord injury.  I do a CIC, clean intermittent catheterization, about 6 times a day and this eliminated a lot of problems I had in the past.

I hope this helps.
