How are you? With the details you have given i presume that your suffering from enlarged prostrate. Enlarged prostrate is common complaint in men after the age of 45, but it can start at an early age too. Prostrate gland sorrounds the urethra, but if it is enlarged it will press the urethra not allowing it to release the urine.
Symptoms can be inability to pass urine, frequent visits to the bathroom, feeling of fullness of the bladder after passing urine, burning sensation etc.
Normally, the function of the prostrate is to secrete fluid that is present in the semen. And formation of the sperms takes place in seminal vesicles.
Enlarged prostrate can be treated conservatively with alpha- blockers or finasteride. Surgical treatment involves resection of a part of prostrate, but not complete removal of the gland. So there would not be any problems in having normal sex and ejaculation.
The only complications expected could be trauma to the urethra, but that is very rare.
