Burning at tip

I’m 3.5 months post op RP and all good ...I’ve noticed sometimes I get the symptoms of a mild uti burning in the uthera it tends to go away after a few days I’ve been dip tested down the gps but no infection ive tried to analyse diet drinking etc but I don’t drink any alcohol tea or coffee could it be some deferred pain after over doing lifting or staring in my feet to long I’m at a bit of a loss as it can be very irritating after I’ve had a pee has anyone else had this ? I have no other symptoms of a uti I’m keeping my fluid levels up and even tried cystopurin to combat acidity urine .... so if anyone has any ideas ?

James 

What is you flow like, what colour is you urine and does it smell. How frequently do you pass urine. What type of surgery did you have ,open , robotic or laparoscopic ?

Thanks Chris

Hi chris 

Light straw colour ,I had robotic radical prostectomy

theres a slight odour but no more than normal but I’m not sure what normal is 

i do have a good flow and I’m going to the loo as normal but I’m on 2 to 3 tener 2 pars per day and completely dry at night 

I’ve upped my fluid levels today to see if it flushes out 

My pelvic muscles are tired tonight so a little more leaky than normal

If you are still leaky it may be that irritating your pipe, 3.5 months is still pretty early.

Do you have a foreskin? Do you perhaps have thrush? It can be caused by a catheter, by urinary irritation, antiobiotics or, if you are susceptible, stress.

If not thrush, have you tried drinking cranberry juice?

Hi all 

i do have one a forskin but I’ll try canaesten also I take a cranberry juice tablet every day but maybe be try the juice it’s self 

when I lay flat it seems to go away so I suspect it’s leaky irritation 

the problem is even after 3.5 months I do feel very low with it all

Drinking cranberry juice (proper stuff, not the cheaper 'from concentrate' ideally) will rebalance the Ph levels and soothe the bladder and urethra lining.
