Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I look forward to working with you.
The normal rate of urination should be above 20 ML per second. So in 10 seconds you should excrete at least 200 ML. So your volume is more than adequate. Hope this helps.

I put too many 0's in. It should have been 120 ml in 10 secs.

Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 3 years ago.
Ok. You are at 12 ML per second then. This is slightly obstructed. This does not indicate prostate size, just how forceful your urine stream is.
