Re: Bladder Removal

I would advise that you request a review appointment with your current Consultant and explain that the instillation treatment is only helping a little bit and you have significant residual symptoms. Explain that you would like to discuss bladder removal. With regard to chronic UTI (which I think you...

Re: Is there any other treatment apart from ISC

This is a complex case. You appear to have 2 problems - firstly your bladder doesn't empty therefore you are reliant on self-catheterisation and secondly you are leaking between catheters. There is no tablet treatment to restore bladder function and enable you to re-establish normal voiding. Sacral ...

Re: Lack of pelvic floor contry

There is lots of help out there - you should ask the GP to refer to a continence advisor or pelvic floor physiotherapist. I'm not surprised the tablets are not helping as it sound like you have stress urinary incontinence and the tablets are for overactive bladder syndrome / urge urinary incontinence.

Re: BPH nocturnal diuresis

This sounds very much like nocturnal polyuria ( a condition where 33% or more of your daily urine output occurs during nighttime hours). If you keep a bladder diary for a few days prior to your next review appointment (marking the times when you go to bed and wake) then your urologist may be able to...

Re: Why do you start weeing again?

There are a number of possible reasons for this. If its a small amount then it may be due to an insufficient pelvic floor contraction at the end of the void which is usually the body's mechanism for making sure the last few drops of urine are expelled. If it is a larger amount then it could be due t...

Re: bladder weakness due to enlarged prostate

Yes his symptoms may respond to surgery but we usually start with lifestyle measures and fluid management followed by tablet treatment and reserve surgery for those who do not respond. I'm not sure how far into this pathway your husband may be but if he has severe symptoms as described then a consul...

Re: bedwetting

it sounds like you should see a continence advisor who can make an initial assessment, advise on lifestyle measures and if appropriate organise containment products for you, I have had some success with sacral nerve stimulation for isolated nocturnal enuresis (bedwetting).

Re: Emsella Device for stress incontinence

I have no experience of this device and haven't seen any high quality research regarding it. The promotional literature suggested a 75% reduction in pad use but it is not recommended by any guideline that I am aware of.
