This is a really interesting thread so I am pleased you started a new one. The last year or so my bladder control has been really poor, I was leaking a lot etc. Then I was in hospital having pump implanted I could not pee after the op so had a catheter for a few days. All the scans showed I was retaining an average of 400 ml though I have never had a UTI. I also had lost the urge to pee had to go every hour or so to be safe. The urologist did a test & filled bladder then I could not pee. He was not sure what the problem was, did not think it was a spastic bladder but said that the bladder was stretched. So he said I would need to self catheterise 3 times a day. I never did it more than 2 a day for about
2 months. I also started taking urologic, a supplement said to improve bladder function etc. But now I have stopped needing to catheterise at all, have regained a lot of control & am getting some message to pee. My bladder has improved so much that it is like it was about
5 years ago, so I am very happy. Great to have improvement of something for a change.
