Urodynamics test has been scheduled
I've been having trouble with continence issues (stress and urge) and saw my new uro-gyn a couple of days ago. He examined me and said I do not have a prolapsed bladder, but would like to do a urodynamic study to see what's going on.
Surgery may even be an option, but he said that would be a last resort (a "sling" procedure).
The night of that exam and even today, I felt pain that seemed to be coming from my bladder. From time to time I get pain that reminds me of a UTI I had several years ago. I'm not sure if that's what it is, or just from being poked at during the exam, IBS, or all of the above.
Could my problem be interstitial cystitis?? This pain doesn't happen all the time, it's just intermittent, but I was so nervous during the exam I forgot to tell him about it. I've got so many other medical issues going on it's not funny.
Anyway, the urodynamic study will be done in about a week, possibly sooner if they get a cancellation in the meantime. I just want this over with....
