trouble voiding, trouble with flomax

Hello, I am a 45 year old male. I have had bladder pain and trouble emptying my bladder for about 2 years. Initially treated with antibiotics for about 6 months as they thought prostititis. Have been taking flomax for about 1 1/2 years but then increasing trouble ejaculating and then eventually maintaining erection. Added viagra to try and solve this problem. Went off flomax 6 weeks ago. Now gaining and maintaining erections and completing intercourse is better but recent ultrasound showed 200ml of 400ml not emptying from bladder after voiding. Increased bladder pain again and often feels like I need to void but not able to. Had cystoscopy intitially which indicated nothing. So the question, what might be causing this? Worried about cancer but none apparent to doctor. Do I need to be on flomax long term? Is there better medications for this? Are there other things I should be considering? Thank you.

I think these are all great questions that you should bring up with your doctor.   If you have BPH that is not being solved with Flomax you may need to consider other options like TURP or in the short term you might have to self cath.  Whatever you do you need to get on it with your doctor asap.

I don't think flomax has a connection with ED but it often makes ejaculation impossible.  When you climax it still will feel the same.   As my uro said "its no big deal"

ED at your age is pretty common.  I would warn you that ED can be an early warning for clogged up veins etc.   Keep ahead of that and get a yearly checkup.
