In a candid vlog, Mallery explains that she has been suffering from hesitation when urinating and was unable to empty her bladder. Mallery is feeling much more positive after visiting her urologist, as she’s now been prescribed a mild antibiotic that will help keep the urine that she retained sterile, and also prescribed the drug Flomax which is usually used in benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) treatment. Flomax helps to relax the muscles surrounding the urethra making urination easier, which should help eliminate the hesitation problem.
