Bladder scan


I had an ultra sound on my badder due to los of sensation and urgency to pass water. At the same time i expereince a heavy uncomfortable feeling low down and feel im not always emptying my bladder fully. The ultra sound did not show any evidence of me not emptying my bladder but i still feel i have this problem some of the time.

Now iv been referred for a further scan where they insert a camera in my bladder. Im not sure that this will make any difference to my symptoms and wondered what others had done with similar symptoms.

The lack of sensation when i need to go leaves me with urgency and i can only pass water standing (im female) as if its gravity thats making me go.

Any thoughts please


Not exactly the same but for some months now I have been able to go through the night without having to get up once to urınate before say 7:30 (for some years would normally have had to get up at least twice ın the night). I now feel a dıfferent dull sensation ın the mornıng that I have come to associate wıth a full bladder. Havıng saıd that, I stıll get a feelıng of urgency once up. In one sense ıt ıs great not to be disturbed during the night but I cant help wondering why this should happen ın quite an abrupt and sustaıned manner. When I trıed to get a drs appıntment (very busy practıce) the trıage phone call dr saıd he dıdnt thınk ıt was neccessary but to get back ın a month or so ıf ıt was stıll happenıng. I havent bothered.

hi christine

i rock backwards and forward several times and usually manage to pass some even if i think i’ve already had a good pee.

it’s like when you park on a hill and the dial says you have no petrol.

some physics principle or other

my latest motability car is bossy.

put air in your tyres!

on the way to the petrol station it becomes frantic - put air in your tyres!!

i ignore it until i get to an air pump.

as fr the sat nav - it says ‘take the next left’ no entry so i go past and it gets so irate.

i can’t cope with bossy husband so i really don’t get on with bossy machines!

i’m good at ignoring.
