I had a hip replacement about 4 months ago! They put a catheter in my bladder during the sugrery and put on narcotic pain medicine for the surgery.Then after the surgery i had to go physical therapy and it worked up my nerves so bad, since i got generalized anxiety disorder that worked on ny bladder too! My bladder really took a beating through all of this! Now i'm going through menopauseand that causes urinary frequency! Seems like i have to get up every hour or so to get up and go to the bathroom! It turnsw on like a leaky faucet! I tried meds, but it caused urinary retention, hen i got bladder infections! Bedore the surgery, i was getting up like every 2 hours or so! I'm trying bladder training and kegals! When i go away, i always have to go places wher ethy have bathrooms! I do not understand what is going on! I figure its the menopause that is causing urinary frequency!View Thread

But it take 6 weeks to reduce generalized anxiety disorder symptoms, but you have do it every day for 30 mins. I did some research on the under google search engine.View Thread
