Hi there, so I've been going to my local continence clinic for the past few months now and finally they are going to take action by prescribing me some sort of meds, which are to be determined by my GP.
I went to visit them on Wednesday as my bedwetting has been pretty much non stop for the past few weeks and my daytime problems are now so bad that I have been using nappies every day recently. I did everything they asked me to do - cut out coffee, carbonated drinks, alcohol, drink more water etc but there has been no change other than my problems have gotten much much worse.
They did a bladder scan and apparently my bladder appears to be emptying itself properly, which is good, I guess. I didn't realise that during the scan, the top of my nappy was peeking out of the top of my shorts and the nurse noticed, which was kind of embarrassing.
She said that she could get some pads for me but I'm pretty sure they will be these NHS ones which I hear are useless. She said that "they won't be the nappy-style ones like you're wearing right now" but she's gonna send me some samples so we will see.
So now she's contacted my GP to arrange for him to prescribe some meds which apparently make the nerve endings in my bladder less responsive.
Has anybody had any meds like these before and how have they worked? Have they had any nasty side effects?
