Prostate AND hernia
Sorry to be a persistent poster but am at a low ebb. Since discovering my Rh hernia a few weeks ago, I’ve noticed I am urinating very frequently. I get a mild urge almost straight away after voiding but It know I dint need to act. I can hold out for 3 hours (or longer, dont know if that is good or not to do that). Flow is reasonable but not as strong as when young.
Could a hernia make urinary symptoms worse?
I have always urinated a lot but now much more since hernia. Could that happen or just coincidence?
I’ve looked at previous posts ref hernia and prostate and it seems it’s best to have the prostate done first. Medication is an option but finasteride can cause (permanent) ED whilst the bladder neck relaxer can cause dry ejaculation.
Surgery: there are numerous options but many can affect erections adversely.
Then I believe you have to wait for prostate surgery to heal before getting hernia surgery. Getting over prostate surgery can take quite a time.
So the 2nd question is, does having prostate surgery make hernia repair surgery more difficult?
Thirdly, with both prostate and hernia surgery in the ‘sensitive’ area – does having two procedures increase the risk to sexual function?
Sorry to keep asking for advice but it is affect me badly.
Thanks for any, and all help.
