  • A Flow Test

    What is a "flow" test? Does it hurt? I am gettting one done in January. Thanks

    To see how much water that you can hold, I think that is what flow test is and to see how your urine flows. I could be wrong here. maybe someone else can answer this question.
    Hang in there , There is hope.
    There is hope. Prayer works.

      There's also a test for flow pattern -- continuous, stop/start, how much per second, that sort of thing. It can be done by voiding into a cup on a scale, so it's not invasive.
