I have chronic urinary retention and have had 2 surgeries to make cuts in the muscles around my urethra because I have to pee ALL THE TIME because I don't fully empty my bladder. It's incredibly annoying. I don't know if it's related to Crohn's or not. A lot of anti-diarrheals actually make my bladder problems worse, so I don't know if they are related.
