paralized bladder need catheter

Postby aspe » Mon Jan 28, 2013 1:16 am

Hello, I've only been on here once and just refound this forum. Feeling very miserable after a bladder op.
I've Been told my bladder is paralized due to nerve damage and that I will need to learn intermittant self catheterization.
I'm just trying to get used to indwelling catheter and bags and trying to recover from operation and all on top of worsening fibro, esp my memory and spasms.
Is there anyone out there who has this experience? Looking for ideas, support, practical advice etc
Sorry to rant. X

paralized bladder need catheter

Hi aspe.
I haven't got paralysed bladder but I was wondering if any of my symptoms are similar to yours when it first started. I often really struggle to go to the loo. I have to leave the tap running and really squeeze my bladder which is quite painful.
I'm sorry that yours is so bad and am now worried that I may be heading that way.

Yes Kath. Gradually its been harder and harder to wee despite feeling full.
In urodynamic testing they found it was paralized and I had urine retention.
They said I was managing to go by straining abdominal muscles and leaning forward.
It might be worth asking for tests. At the bladder clinic, the specialist nurses are lovely. They said they have quite a few patients needing catheterizing who also have fibro.

:-D hi' guys i'm also having bladder probs, i'm having to force myself quite a lot lately,i get a pain and feel i need to go quickly or end up wetting myself, but get to the loo and then struggle.
it rally seems that fm likes to take over the control of our bodies.
until i found this forum( quite by chance), i did'nt know that so many people have fm, and the support from each other is great as we can all relate to how each of us feels. :-D :-D
