What to do if you are unable to pass urine….
Recently I met a famous allopathy doctor on account of a medical article. He is in his 70s…is an ENT specialist. It was astonishing to listen to one of his experience which he shared. That day morning when he woke up he had a problem. He had an urge to pass urine but for some reason he was unable to do. At this age some people face with such problem some times and if they try two or three times they may succeed. He tried after some time but same condition. His continuous efforts didn’t bear any result. Then he realised there is some problem. Though he is a doctor but he is not an exception to such physical problems as he is also made of the same flesh and blood like everyone. Now his lower abdomen became heavy and he was unable to sit or stand and was suffering with the building pressure. Immediately he called up a known urologist on phone and explained his situation. Urologist replied “I am at present in a hospital in the outskirts and I will be coming to a clinic in your area in another one and a half hour. Will you be able to withstand that long?” He replied “I will try”.
At that instant he received an incoming call which happened to be from another allopathy doctor from his town (Suseendharam). With great difficulty the ENT doctor explained his situation to his childhood friend doctor. His friend echoed back “oh, your urine bladder is full and you are unable to pass urine. Don’t worry, do as I suggest, you will be able to pass urine”. And he started giving the instructions. “Stand up and jump vigorously …while jumping lift both your hands as though you are plucking the mangoes. Do like this for 15 to 20 times”. What, when the bladder is full he wants me to jump? Though little sceptical the ENT doctor started trying it. What a relief within 5 to 6 time jumping urine started passing. ENT doctor felt overjoyed and felt thankful to his childhood friend doctor for solving it with such simple solution which otherwise would have required an admission in a hospital where they would have inserted a catheter inside the bladder, injections, anti-biotics etc resulting in a bill amount crossing Rs 50,000 in addition to physical and mental stress for him and his near and dear ones.
