Prostatic hyperplasia is not only a urination problem
Prostatic hyperplasia is often called prostatic hypertrophy. It is a common disease in elderly men, and its incidence is getting higher and higher with age. Statistics show that the prevalence of prostate hyperplasia is as high as 50% in elderly men over 60 years old, and the prevalence rate of prostate hyperplasia in elderly men over 80 years old is as high as 80%. This is a very common disease in middle-aged and elderly men.
What will happen if the prostate is hyperplasia? Often manifested as frequent urination, urgency and increased nocturia. Many elderly male patients often tell Dr. Zeng: Dr. Zeng, I am urinating too frequently. I feel that the water I drink immediately turns into pee. I will urinate soon after drinking water. I dare not drink water; I just wanted to urinate right away. I couldn’t bear it. The frequent urination made me afraid to go out. I was afraid that I couldn’t find the toilet when I went out. I couldn’t drain cleanly when I urinated. I often dripped on my pants, and I could smell urine. ; I get up at night many times to urinate at night, and I can’t sleep well. I’m afraid of falling when I get up at night. This uncle uttered the aspirations of many elderly men, showing how much distress caused by prostate hyperplasia and how great it affected them.
However, many people feel that it is understandable that older people are more difficult to urinate and take longer to urinate. Dr. Zeng told everyone that this idea is very wrong. Prostatic hyperplasia will not only cause a lot of distress to the elderly, but also seriously affect their lives, and it will also bring a series of complications. Including urinary tract infections, bladder stones, hemorrhoids, hernias, hydronephrosis leading to renal insufficiency, and even uremia. Why does a prostate hyperplasia have so many complications? Is Dr. Zeng Sheng alarmist? After analyzing with you one by one, Dr. Zeng will understand that prostate hyperplasia is not just a problem of peeing.
Urinary tract infection. It is a common complication of prostate hyperplasia. Why is prostate hyperplasia prone to urinary tract infection? Just like the sewer in the bathroom at home is blocked, the sewage cannot be discharged, a lot of bacteria will grow, the same reason, if the urination is not smooth, it will cause urine to stay in the bladder, which is easy to breed bacteria in the bladder , Leading to urinary tract infections. At the same time, urine is retained in the bladder, and the sediment in the urine will slowly settle in the bladder, which is prone to bladder stones, another complication of prostate hyperplasia.
When the prostate is hyperplasia, it is difficult to urinate, and the abdominal pressure needs to be increased every time you urinate. It is especially prone to complications such as hemorrhoids and hernias. At the same time, the bladder detrusor also needs to be contracted hard to discharge urine. The bladder will appear for a long time. Detrusor fatigue appears to be weak in contraction and becomes thinner, leading to the appearance of bladder diverticulum, and even complete weak contraction of the bladder detrusor, which is called neurogenic bladder. This is a worldwide problem. There is no neurogenic bladder. Effective treatment
In his daily work, Dr. Zeng often encounters patients with prostatic hyperplasia prolonged for a long time. He often comes to see the doctor because he can’t urinate for several days and the bladder is swollen and painful. When Dr. Zeng checked the patient’s lower abdomen, he found that the lower abdomen was bloated. It's like a pregnant woman who is three or four months pregnant, except that the old man's belly is filled with urine. In this situation, Dr. Zeng immediately inserted urine in the elderly, and often released 1000-2000ml of urine. Color Doppler ultrasound in the urinary system indicated hydronephrosis and abnormally increased creatinine. Why is this happening? When the prostate is obstructed and the urine in the bladder is not discharged smoothly or even cannot be discharged at all, the urine slowly accumulates and spreads into the kidneys. As a result, the dam was repaired downstream, and the exposed rocks upstream were also Will be soaked in water. This situation is the most serious complication of benign prostatic hyperplasia. This is surgery, and the postoperative recovery effect is often not satisfactory.
Therefore, benign prostatic hyperplasia is not just a problem of inability to urinate. In severe cases, it can lead to uremia. After veteran males have symptoms of prostatic hyperplasia, do not bear it, do not avoid doctors, pay attention, deal with it as soon as possible, actively treat, and make urine again.
