Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

A health care provider treats urinary retention with:
bladder drainage
urethral dilation
urethral stents
The type and length of treatment depend on the type and cause of urinary retention which you would need to discuss with your doctor.

The health benefits of cranberry juice include relief from urinary tract infection, among other things. There is an active ingredient in cranberries that can prevent adherence of bacteria to the bladder wall.
