I GOT UP THIS MORNING WITH A GREAT URGE TO URINATE. I WAS HOWEVER UNABLE TO URINATE FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES AND AFTER THIS I WAS ONLY ABLE TO URINATE WITH SEVERE STRAINING. I PLAN TO CALL MY UROLOGIST TODAY TO SEE IF I MAY NEED TO GET IN TO SEE HIM SOONER THAN MY 3 MONTH FOLLOW-UP. I ALSO HAVE SLOW STREAM AND SPLIT STREAM URINATION. COULD MY URETHRA BE CONSTRICTING TO CAUSE THESE PROBLEMS. ANY ADVICE OR VIEWS ON THIS WOULD BE HELPFUL TO ME SO I WILL KNOW IF I NEED TO FOLLOW-UP IN THE FUTURE WITH MY UROLOGIST. I HAVE PAINFUL LIKE STINGING SENSATIONS IN THE URETHRA AS WELL. I HAVE SUFFERED WITH CONSTANT UTI'S IN THE PAST. I HAVE ALSO BEEN TOLD IN THE PAST THAT I HAVE A SMALL URETHRA AND I WAS JUST WONDERING IF THIS COULD BE THE PROBLEM WITH ME. ANY ADVICE IS HELPFUL.
