Hi--can you tell me exactly what your problem is and is this new for you?

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

At your age, difficulty with urination is most likely due to an enlarged prostate.

This should be checked by a doctor right away as it could cause serious urinary retention

Sometimes you can get more urine out by changing position

urinating while sitting down and leaning forward can help

have you tried this?
