I think you might need to consult with a urologist to see if you are having urinary retention due to either an enlarging prostate or other medication side effects. So urinary hemodynamics and prostate evaluation are necessary in your condition, and of course, need to rule out urine infection as well. Finally, the urologist might want to make a decision on cystoscopy as well (bladder video). Also need a urine analysis looking for blood or urine protein or infection.
Has your prostate been checked?
