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

Well, to start with I am a SCI. Neurogenic bladders are very common with this type of injury. My PVR was determined by a urodynamic test. (Very invasive!) After starting with a CIC program, I do not have any leakage and can go several hours between cathing. My urologist tried many muscle relaxing drugs for the bladder muscle. With a neurogenic bladder, there is a problem with the bladder muscle and bladder nerves communicating. The nerve will transmit that the bladder is empty and the spincter would close too soon.

I hope I answered your questions.

Note: I wish I had started CIC long ago.
