  • I didn't like it


    and I'm more confused about things. I went in today for urodynamics. I peed in this chair hooked up to this ibm computer. Then they proceeded to jam 2 catheters similtanoulsly in my crotch, a sensor in my ass. Then I'm filled up and asked how i felt (?) Bizarre!
    WHat a surreal situation.

    After, I couldn't pee on command--bladder locked up on me-- so I was told to do multiplication tables (it came out!--even weirder) and why am I doing this? Will this test help me get closer to Interstim? Please say yes....thanks just had to vent a little but I do wan to to know what did you find out?
    I am so not amused...

    Sorry to hear it didn't go so well for you. (I forgot to ask you if you were giong to have someone with you for support? - My husband goes with me to those and holds my hand. It helps more than I can say.)

    Did the nurse tell you what she was seeing as she went? Did you look at the monitors and ask questions? I think my husband did all the talking with the nurse. I don't think I would've been able to.

    Call the place you had the test done, or your regular doc, and ask for a copy of the report to be sent to you. Reading it should tell you a bunch of information. We can probably help you decipher it too.

    Let us know.
    Take good care ofyourself.

      Terri: I did ask some questions an i think thats where things started to get confusing. I peed the first time without being hooked up (BTW: I got there an hour earlier and stared drinking then--I got about a little less than a quart down).So OK I peed without being cathed first, then the cath-I felt empty, then I could feel myself filling up again--apparently maybe I'm acutally not emptying as well as she thought, based on our last visit.

      And adjusting the caths left everything feeling probed and raw and I feel full because of that, so it was hard to tell what I felt and how full? I don't have overactive bladder, we estalished that.
      At the end when it was over, my bladder spasmed into retention mode--that hasn't happened in YEARS. I'm kicking myself because I should have asked for a copy right then and there. (The color printer was hooked up underneath--CRAP!) I guess I'll wait til I get the results back and post again. Maybe I won't be as befuddled then. Thanks for your help!!!
      Hugs,
