Urodynamics test

I'm new to this board and hope to get some advice. Due to some difficulty at times of emptying my bladder completely, frequency and some pain/spasms have become an issue. I am going to have Urodynamics testing done and wanted some feedback on what to expect.

Re: Not emptying bladder completely?

Zoebelle, I have had this issue now for 4.5 years and my neurologist has said it is called Fowler's syndrome. It is caused from surgery most times. Self catheterization is one way to empty your bladder. I have been doing this for over a year now, and the urologist is now doing the urodynics test and I might possibly have to have a pacemaker in my back to stimulate my sacral nerve.

I wish you the best
