Answer: well, hillary, one most important thing for u to know after reading ur question is " surgery is the only mainstay of treatment of urethral diverticuli. medicines usually given r pain-killers and antibiotics for dysuria and UTI respectivey, which is seen with diverticulum." now, without knowing ur detailed history and test results, i cant asses when and if any which surgical intervention u need. but for the weekend at least, u can take anti-spasmodic agents, if they r already prescribed to u(they r not OTC and used for cramping pains of genito urinary or gastro intestinal origin). for ur urinary frequency, i would suggest u take no medication. if its too troublesome, just limit ur liquid intake to water mostly, and avoid tea, coffee, juices, alochol in particular. best adviced to take an appointment of a surgeon, sooner the better. take care hillary. -aaveg.
