If the many health issues that come with aging, one of the most vexing is also among the hardest to talk about, even with a doctor: a troublesome bladder. For men with enlarged prostate which causes a weak urine stream or a constant need to pee, several types of medication either shrink the prostate, halt its growth or relax muscles, helping improve flow. As surgeons, we try to minimize the damage to those structures,” said Ashutosh Tewari, MD, MBBS, MCh, chair of the department of urology at the Mount Sinai Health System. Dr. Tewari also advises men after prostate surgery and even those without prostate problems to adopt healthy bladder habits and do their Kegel exercises.
