I've just had a urodynamics investigation as I had a Staph B infection in my bladder at the end of August and the antibiotics have cleared the actual infection but I'm still getting urge/full bladder feelings and frequency, including at night (about 4 times a night) so they have decided to investigate it further.
I have been told by my consultant urogynaecologist that this infection was just a coincidence which put my doctors off the scent of the real problem and that many people walk around with this sort of strain of infection without even knowing it as it's symptomless.
When I went for my urodynamics today, they said that my bladder wasn't holding much urine in when they filled it up - the capacity of my bladder was in the 200s, maybe 300s but not 500cc which is what the healthy human bladder usually holds.
They also x-rayed me and checked how much urine was leftover after going and there was a bit left over which I had to go back to the toilet to eventually get out.
What sort of treatments may be appropriate for these two problems? I've tried bladder retraining where I resist the urge to go and over time extend the time between going but found this to be of no help.
These symptoms all came on after an intense session of physio at the end of August where I had to do tummy pumps/pelvic floor exercises due to my other problem which is my back but have found that ever since then my bladder has never been the same. Me and my mom wonder if the intense physio actually made my muscles go a bit overactive. I have talked to the urodynamics specialists and they wondered if it had something to do with it.
Is it possible to over exercise the area nearby the bladder and cause bladder spasms or other problems?
Thanks for any help and advice you can give. It's greatly appreciated.
