On 20th August 2018 I had a CT scan to identify a thrombosis in my femoral vein extending into the external iliac vein. I had and still have a swollen left leg.
The CT scan also showed a very enlarged bladder. Also mild hydronephrosis of both kidneys
This was confirmed as chronic urine retention. On 24th August I was subsequently drained of 3000ml of urine by catheter. I experienced post-obstructive diuresis for the following 24 hours.
Two physical examinations of my prostate have confirmed it is enlarged. All urine output since draining has been by catheter.
I am now ISC ( 4 times a day) and have been measuring my fluid input and urine since draining.
What worries me is that on some days I produce over 3200ml of urine against drinking of around 2100ml. i have produced 1200 or 1300 ml in around 5 hours. Should I be concerned?
Creatinine levels in my blood have been 104, 95, 87 and now 103.
Over the whole period since draining averaged input and output have been similar. (2229ml and 2281ml.)
I am a white male 69 years old, otherwise healthy.
