"retention problem"

About: Leicester General Hospital

I had a bladder retention problem due to enlarged prostate and was transferred to the General in the middle of the night after visiting the local hospital and Royal who could not insert a catheter. I was seen within in a few minutes and the problem was solved after being in agony for hours. That aspect was good.

Later with a day surgical procedure for tests on the prostrate, I was sent home with too few antibiotics and will have to wait 4 weeks for the results which I suggest is far too long.
