Periodically, for several months at a time, I have problems getting to the loo without starting to wee before I’m sitting on the seat (urgency). I have been to see a consultant and been offered botox but by the time the appointment came through I was fine. A week or two later the urgency started again. I went to my GP, got another appointment with the consultant on 24th June. Of course as soon as the appointment came through my bladder problems started going away. I don’t know whether to go ahead with my appointment or cancel it.
I had a bladder scan a few years ago and was retaining more than 100ml of urine so I was taught to self-cathaterise, which I did every morning and sometimes at other times in the day for a couple of years. I don’t have to do it any more - I used to have to do it because I needed to go to the loo every half an hour in the morning otherwise (frequency). Now I go several hours between visits. If I have botox I will have to self-cathaterise at least twice a day.
Has anyone else had these bladder problems (urgency and/or frequency) that stick around for a while and then go away again? Has anyone got any advice?
