Hi ladies, I've been reading for many weeks your lovely encouraging although emotional posts but have hardly had any strength to add my views, I'm due for a laparoscopy on the 20th June after what can only be described as a nightmare with chronic pain and getting doctors and gynaecologist's to listen. Finally my date for laparoscopy is coming round after 5 months on prostap which has left me so ill from side effects although helping somewhat with the pain. I have been having a new side effect lately though of urine retention and just wanted to know how common it is. I wake up a few times in the night to pee and my bladder feels full but I'm sat for minutes literally trying to get the flow to start, then comes the challenge of keeping it going because instead of a heavy stream I'm getting trickles but that last for ages! It's infuriating. What is going on?
Also, anyone on prostap could you please list your side effects because I feel like I'm not believed when I tell people.
Thank you so much for reading and I'd really appreciate your time to reply.
