Re: Very High Urine Post Void Residual Why? What to do?

My urologist started me doing a Clean Intermittent Catheterization (CIC) and that eliminated my problem. I have been doing this since 2004 and wish I had started many years ago.

I hope this helps.
Thank you Millard for your very interesting reply (and btw the great J Wayne's quote :-)). Do you mind sharing which is your current level of PVR after so many years of CIC? Also, how the neurogenic bladder condition was diagnosed and treated?
