It is embarrassing but a week or so I had to control flow so I didn't pee between the seat and rim. Sometimes my stream is like u deer super pressure and that is when it is the worst but at times it flows more normally but I have to be careful now. I also feel like sometimes I have to really think about it to "get going" and when it stops I can usually go more if I just keep pushing. Will this go away? My doctors partner said sometimes things are pulled up more and it usually helps sexually?
