I didn't know which forum I could try to ask this question in so may I try here? One of you might be able to direct me to the right forum or know the answer to this question.
My daughter is a pediatric nurse and she says much of the time she doesn't have the time to urinate. She told me today she needed to urinate during yesterday's work shift at 2:00 and she waited until 6:00.
Her bladder is probably stretching. Do any of you know what the complications may be for her long term if she continues to do this?

Hi there.....I do not know if it stretches your bladder but I do not it is not good for anyone to hold can cause urinary tract infection, however I am not a doc and would definetly either have her go to her doc or check with yours.

Take care, Amy

Hi, I used to be the same way - always in to big of a hurry to pee and I paid for it - holding more urine stretches your bladder and for pockets on each side that holds urine and having toxic urine on board can tear your bladder up due to infection. The only fix is surgical. It's called an A and P repair. It was a painfull surgery that left scars up in my vagina and the scars hurt, especially with having sex...... but that is much better theb getting toxic and dying.
See your OB, drink lots of fluid to make you feel the urgency more and you will break the habit of holding it in.... DRINK lots og cranberry juice as wel.
