hard time getting the urine to start, pain

User Profile
I am a 28 year old male and recently had my wisdom teeth removed. I was put under for the procedure. After it was done I have had trouble urinating, i have a hard time getting the urine to start. when I do go it's a small amount and a small stream. Then shortly after I feel I need to go again. I have small amounts of pain in my abdomen and lower back, more of just a discomfort most of the time. Never really had any problems until after the procedure, it's been going on about 2 weeks. Is this anything to worry about and should seek a doctor? Or will it go away in time? Thank you.

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

Difficulty in urinating in males can be due to obstruction due to enlarged prostate due to benign prostatic hypertrophy (often called BPH) or infection of the prostate( prostatitis) or stones in the urinary tract.

I suggest you an immediate urologist’s evaluation to check out these possibilities and confirm the diagnosis after investigations like ultrasound.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
