I saw a urologist today for my frequency. I related my history:
1) Kidney stone once about 20 years ago (peed blood)
2) Working as a clerk and having to hold it for long periods.
3) Having a urethral stricture and Urethomony (sp) about 15 years ago
4) Adult circumcision about the same time due to balantitis (sp)
and now I wake up at night and go ever hour or so in the day.
I also dribble when I use urinal and have a split stream - actually wet the front of my pants some.
So, the nurse assistant who asked me my history asked how many pads I use.
I said none. She also used the term incontinent. I don't consider myself incontinent.
The Dr. prescribed Vesicare and also gave me a urinal to pee into. He wants me to record my volume and time. In 6 weeks, he wants to do a cytoscope (?) tolook in my bladder.
I did not tell him about liking diapers.
What do you all think about the assistant's question?
I did 2 measurements so far - 200cc and 225cc about 1.5 hours apart.
