He does specialize in urology, he also specializes in lying.
90% of everything he told me, I have found out is nothing but a lie.
Your bladder empty is equilivant to the size of a tennis ball, as it fills with urine, it stretches and gets bigger. If I had a low capacity, it would not be able to reach it's normal capacity, thus, making my bladder SMALL, this jerk however says I have a low capacity, my bladder is shrinking, but the size is normal. I don't think so. You could use a balloon as a demonstration of how your bladder expands. If your bladder is unable to hold but just a little bit of urine, it will not have a normal size, just like adding water to a balloon, just add a little and it will not get very big. That's a perfect example of what your bladder does.
I was originally diagnosed with reactive cystitis (chronic condition), which is what is known as chemical cystitis. Now my urologist is trying to say reactive is an inflammation to anything and that it's IC. My other doctor explained it as a reaction to just chemicals. He was not lying, my urologist was.
You can measure bladder capacity with hydrodistention. A cystogram is not used to measure capacity under anethesia. Furthermore, your capacity will be higher during a hydrodistention then your asleep in bed capacity, but when I wake up and pea in the morning, my capacity is very normal, usually 600cc, 400 cc is considered the normal range. So he in no question lied when he said your bladder can't hold much, because with IC it can't hold much.
The problem is I don't have IC. It was nothing but a mistake on my medical records. Everything they told me pertaining to this condition was nothing but a lie. I could keep going on and on and on about what he lied about. I went to him trying to get the truth, and he just didn't want to give it to me. The problem is that it looks to me like my 1st urologist did not want me having my prolapses fixed telling me my bladder was shrinking getting smaller & smaller, and that I could make this IC condition that much worse by having it done. However this condition was nothing but a lie and I had 3 organ prolapses only after this same doctor performed his first cystoscopy & hydrodistention on me. See the problem?
