  • Urodynamic test?


    What exactly is a urodynamic test? Is it a cystoscopy that measures how much your bladder can hold?

    Thanks everyone!

      Hi Colleen,
      I just had urodynamic test 2 weeks ago, it measure all sorts of things within and around your bladder. They insert a very small catheter in your bladder and a small probe monitor in your rectum, you come with a comfortably full bladder and then you pee in this special chair and it tells what your bladder does when it fills with unrine, shows what the muscles around your bladder do etc.... it is not a bad test. I dreaded it really bad but it was not bad. Hope this helps!

        Hi Kim,

        Thanks for your info on the urodynamics testing. It sounds like a good test to have to tell what's going on bladder wise and maybe which treatment would work better. I still hate the idea of it, but at least I know what to expect and that you didn't have a bad time with it. Thanks so much!


        And thanks Sheri, for your good thoughts and wishes!
