I have had problems with bladder control for a while - mainly urgency (when I feel the need to go, I’ve GOT to go, can’t hold it). I have been prescribed solifenacin which has helped a bit but I still have the problem from time to time. The main problem is I have to go for a pelvic scan, (not pregnancy) and for this I need a full bladder. I have been advised to drink at least one pint of liquid an hour before the appointment time. There also mention in the letter of possible delays although I will be seen as close to my appointment time as possible. I have been practising - I can’t wait for an hour. I will need to hold for at least I hour plus scan time. I will be be so embarrassed if I wet myself in the waiting area or on the exam couch. How can I hold on for longer?
