Did you have a big baby? Maybe the bladder has dropped a little. I assume they checked you for that. I guess by ultrasound. I never actually leaked but many times came extremely close. Actually did happen once or twice but at home and no one knew. My bladder is where it should be. Maybe someday they will figure it all out. My son was 10 1/2 pounds and layed right on my bladder. Still my bladder is where it should be.

I use to drink alot of diet soda. I stopped drinking it in 2002 after Gastric Bypass Surgery. For a long time my bladder was much better. I always thought the NutraSweet must have caused the bladder to be over active.

I took Detrol, Ditropan XL, Amitriptalyine (sp?). The Amitrip. is an anti depressant that is used at night to stretch the bladder to hold more so you are not up all night. It worked. I'm on Vesicare now. A new bladder med I think. Don't even know if mine is overactive. Seeing a specialist Wed.
