  • Help-non functioning bladder

    If there is anyone else considered end stage:
    How do you know when you have a non functioning bladder?
    I know this might be a stupid question, but I went to the uro. for Botox again and he thinks my bladder is too scarred.
    Does anyone else have to bear down really hard to pee, trouble emptying the bladder but at the same time, any kind of jarring (cough,sneezing,tripping over something) make you wet your pants?
    I am confused by all this. I am having urodynamics next week. Has anyone else been through this?
    Pain started 12/23/1989, diagnosed 1990
    I am considered severe endstage

    Current meds:
    Avinza (pain clinic)
    Vyvanse (ADD)
    Zoloft (depression/anxiety)
    Vivelle patch (hormones)
    Relpax (migraines)

    Other problems: ADD,PTSD(from years of pain),Possible Behcet's disease,migraines

    Current treatments: Botox injections every 6 months, have had 4 and it changed my life . Hospital based pain medicine doctor, pain therapist

    Things that didn't work: Almost everything: Elmiron,DMSO,diet

    I haven't had your experience, but did want to say that urodynamics is a good idea.

    Stay safe
