any ideas as to why my husband can pass urine daily until the evening hours and then becomes blocked. He underwent brachytherapy in March and the Drs have told him that because of a seed placement too close to the urethra he has scar tissue. He uses his suprapublic cathether during the night. In the morning he passes urine easily, but as the day goes on the stream becomes weaker util nothing comes out. Same thing happens the next day. Could coffee or other high acid foods be contributing to the irritation of the scar tissue causing additional swelling?
It is difficult to say why this is happening. It could be just a diurnal variation or maybe related to fatigue. A definitve scientific explanation is possible only after assessing the problem more thoroughly. We would need to to be sure that he is not retaining urine in the bladder during the day time and this phenomenon of not being able to pass urine in the evening is just related to a fluctuating urine output.
