Now before anyone says this. I am scheduling an appointment to see what I can do.

So for the past 2 months i've been having trouble fully emptying my bladder. This all started out as me not going to the bathroom at all. I had no urge to pee and would go 2 maybe 3 times a day. I went for a period of 7 hours and still did not feel the intense urge. I did increase my water intake since then.

Now the problem is that I can't empty my bladder completely so I go to the bathroom more and it is very uncomfortable for me when my bladder isn't empty. I would go pee and it just seemed as if my stream got cut off. I would stand up and push in my bladder and I still felt as if pee were in there. Now this is embarrassing but I grab a wad of toilet paper and hold it under myself and concentrate and force pee out and a good amount does come out. I told the doctor all of this and he said to wait it out and try to drink more and decrease sodium.

It's now been 2 months since that appointment and nothing has changed. When I drink more water (usually over a gallon a day) it increases the flow but it still cuts off like it did. I am scheduling an appointment sometime this week to get this all figured out.

Now a little medical history. I had a UTI/Kidney stone/ kidney infection a year and a half ago.

What I would like to know is if anyone else has this problem and what tests to get done? I was thinking an ultrasound on my kidneys and my bladder. All opinions are welcome. Thanks for your help! Sorry for the long read!

*Note* Certain positions like laying on my belly and squatting and leaning forward and peeing onto paper towels and etc. help empty it a bit more but this is getting so embarrassing and ridiculous.

**There is no pain associated with peeing. No burning either. I did have a few twinges of pain in my bladder just sitting around the other day. But that is it for pain. I forgot to mention that above!
