Thank you for your query at

You need to get your grandfather evaluated to find what is the cause of urinary retention and if prostate is the cause whether he is fit for surgery or not.

The troubles he is experiencing at this point of time are secondary to bladder spasms and you should start him on anti cholinergic medications under the care of urologist.


Patient replied :

sir he is diabetic for last 20-25 years old patientand has hypertension too and is taking medications for the what other medications he should be prescribed..

You can start him on T. Solifenacin 5mg once daily and he should start feeling better after 2-3 days.
Take care
