I've very much enjoyed being your moderator on the Incontinence/OAB Community, however, I'm moving to a new position and so I won't be your moderator any longer. I leave you in the good hands of Olivia, and the wonderful folks who post here.
You sound like you're on the right track by consulting with your doctor. Nurse Jane wrote a blog post about the UTI that Isn't , and it may be helpful to you. If your symptoms continue, then you may want to talk about getting a referral to a urologist or gyno-urologist to get an expert opinion on what's causing you symptoms.
What is urinary incontinence in men? While you may see ads on TV for products to deal with urinary incontinence in women, the problems men face may not be so out in the open. The Men's Guide says, "Urinary incontinence is the accidental release of urine. It's not a disease. It's a symptom of a problem with a man's urinary tract."
Learn the types of incontinence, causes of incontinence, and some of the treatments for male incontinence that may be available.
Do you have an incontinence issue? How are you dealing with it?
Have you talked to a urologist about your issues? If not, we have an article on Ten Questions to Ask Your Docto r about over-active bladder (OAB) and incontinence. He or she will be able to work with you to find a treatment that fits your needs.
You may also want to post on the Diabetes community for more support.
I think it's important you talk to your doctor about these symptoms. Especially since you feel like it may be related to a medication. The sooner you get these symptoms addressed, the sooner you can hopefully get some relief.
Please let us know how you're doing once you've talked to your doctor.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience with incontinence, and how adult diapers turned out to be the best solution for you right now. I sure hope that other options will be available for you in the future, but I'm glad you have a female urologist who seems to understand what you're going through.
Do you have an tips to share with others who may be using adult diapers?
Quizical, hello and thank you for posting about your daughter. Unfortunately, we no longer have an incontinence health expert on this community.
I would encourage you to stop searching online, and instead seek a second opinion from another pediatric urologist before proceeding if you have any doubts. Perhaps some of our other members will have an experience to share with you, too.
Please update us on how your daughter is doing if you have a chance,
Hello KenJrWeb and thanks for posting. Unfortunately, we no longer have a health expert on this community.
If you are seeking a second opinion, I would encourage you to make an appointment with another urologist. That way you can bring all your records, tests, scans, plus discuss your history and be examined in person.
Hello Paulbronson and thanks for posting. We have several male board members who post--I hope one of them will see your post and reply to you.
You may also want to post on the Prostate Cancer or Men's Health communites if you haven't done that as well. Also, perhaps you can call your surgeon's office and find out if it's something the doctor has found useful for his or her patients?
We don't have a Health Expert on this community, however I do have this article that talks about Urinary Issues and mentions frequency. Since everything is clearly not "o.k." for you, how about asking your doctor for a referral to a urologist? You may want to additionally ask about a gyno-urologist, since they specialize in women's urinary concerns.
This is clearly a problem for you and you deserve to have it recognized, diagnosed, and receive treatment so you can get some sleep.
