Anyone else dealing with weak urine flow?

8 weeks after removal my urine flow is weak, is this normal?

    Hi that is normal initially because the bladder capacity is dimished initially. This can occur due to several reasons . If one decreases the consumption of fluids then the stream tends to be weaker. Also many patients void urine frequently to prevent leakage of urine or because they are afraid that they may not be able to hold the urine long enough to get to a bathroom The bladder needs to be retrained to decrease frequency and urgency.

    Hi Vanita, thank you for providing your perspective! I’m curious if you’ve tried any of these, popduker? This description reminds me of this article on bladder training: https://www.ucsfhealth.org/education/bladder_training/. As the article states, you should always check in with your doc before starting a plan! – Nina, ProstateCancer.net Team

    My stream is very weak, and I’m up at least twice a night. Took my nineteen year old grandson to lunch the other day and we both went to the restroom. I had to wait for awhile before I got started with my weak stream while my grandson is boring a hole in the DAMN PORCILAN! OH TO BE YOUNG AGAIN!!

    Hi popduker. As this article on urinary symptoms related to prostate cancer discusses, weak urine stream can be associated with prostate cancer treatment (as well as symptom before treatment): https://prostatecancer.net/symptoms/urinary/. This fact sheet goes into more detail on urinary problems that can occur after treatment: https://prostatecanceruk.org/media/11857/urinary_problems-ifm.pdf. Best, Richard (ProstateCancer.net Team)
