Prostatitis can cause difficulty urinating. Difficulty urinating caused by acute prostatitis is primarily due to the rapid and severe onset of the patient, which directly leads to a prostate abscess. And it causes extreme pressure on the urethra, causing the patient to have symptoms of dysuria and, even worse, urinary retention will occur.
The urination difficulty caused by chronic prostatitis is primarily due to the inflammatory enlargement of the prostate gland under the stimulation of inflammation for a long time. The enlarged prostate will compress the urethra, so the patient has difficulty urinating, thinning the urine line, incomplete urination, dribbling urine, etc. Of course, when the glands are swollen seriously, the patient will also experience urinary retention.
Difficulty urinating may be caused by prostatitis, but it may also be caused by other reasons, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia, urethral calculi, urethral tumors, urethral stricture, and other diseases. The patient needs to go to the hospital for further diagnosis through prostate fluid test and culture examination.
When a man is diagnosed with prostatitis, prostatitis will continue to develop if the prostatitis is not treated in time. In addition to the difficulty in urination, it may sometimes be accompanied by some radiating pain. This kind of pain will be implicated in some of the surrounding organs.
The patient's waist, spermatic cord, testicles, and scrotum will have varying degrees of pain, and sometimes there will be pain in the thigh, which will be affected when walking when men find themselves with this disease. They all need active treatment to return to a healthy body as soon as possible.
Difficulty urinating caused by prostatitis. What should the patient do?
For dysuria caused by acute prostatitis, in addition to actively taking antibiotics for treatment, the patient needs to perform puncture and drainage of the prostate when necessary so that the patient's urination can return to normal.
For dysuria caused by chronic prostatitis, patients can take the Chinese medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. It promotes blood circulation and relieves pain, diuresis, and dredging stranguria, which can effectively treat chronic prostatitis and help patients eliminate prostate enlargement, so urination returns to normal.
In addition to treatment, patients also need to do the following care in their daily lives:
1. Prostatitis patients must develop good living habits, do not stay up late, and pay attention to avoid overwork, so that bad behavior will cause a decline in immunity, which is not conducive to the recovery of the disease.
2. Patients with prostatitis should avoid spicy and irritating foods and eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. Bad eating habits will affect the treatment and may even worsen the condition.
3. For patients with prostatitis, personal hygiene must not be neglected. They should take a bath daily and change their underwear frequently. It is best to have looser underwear during the illness.
4. Adult men with prostatitis should maintain a regular sexual life to prevent prostatic fluid stasis. They do not need abstinence, and proper sex life can improve local blood circulation, which is more conducive to the dissipation of inflammation.
5. Prostatitis patients should develop the habit of urinating in time. It is forbidden to hold back urine because holding back urine for a long time will cause significant harm to the prostate. Drinking more water and urinating more can play a role in flushing the prostate, which is very beneficial to the recovery of the disease.
