i have been urinating more than normal and retaining urine. Went to a urologist a couple months ago and was diagnosed with pca. The urologist started me on Lupron and Casodex after being catheterized for a few weeks because of retention. The retention has subsided, but i am still urinating frequently. Does anyone have this problem of frequent urination and if so, do you know of any remedies for this problem.

I wish I did my husband is having the same problem. Had a SP aug 2, has had catheters on and of since then, last one clogged and he ended up with renal failure. Just had a scan yesterday and said he’s still retaining and his kidneys are not functioning . Going back to cancer hospital Monday to see what they suggest. I keep asking them if they should start him on Lupron and they say No. His surgery wasn’t successful, cancer around the bladder neck and positive margins. They did tell him in about a year he could try for a sphincter surgery that could help with being incontinent .
I mean low flow or infrequent verses high flow and very frequent--the Drug works, better for the later. As to Pumpkin Seed extract--you kind of make your own dose--as the bottles will usually say 2 a day.[But as I suggested from others, who do this--add water, and Aloe Vera. I am just reporting.
Neither Flomax or Myrbetriq worked for my husband’s frequent urination after lots of bladder tests, etc., we have given up on seeing improvement.
Add to his sudden onset of incontinence this all makes travel so much more interesting. For our frequent road trips I insist he travel with a jug as he should not have to give up coffee.
