I havent posted in a long time so for that I apologise
theres been some recent changes so I thought it would be worth making another post.
firstly I saw my urologist again who suggested that there may be a small chance of multiple sclerosis so due to this he ordered an MRI.
I am somewhat nervous about the MRI, its going to be a scan of my spine and head meaning that Ill be in the machine for 70 minutes or so which is a lot longer than id like it to be, the upside is that it should rule out a lot of things if nothing else.
The MRI is very early next month however I have made a phone call or two to ask questions, according to them the machine has a fairly wide bore comparable to the size of a CT machine,they said that I will have to wear a gown for the scan so Im not super fond of everyone seeing my diaper but I dont mind too much they also said that my protection wont be an issue at all, I asked if they would be able to hold on to my bag for the time im there and they also confirmed that they could. I asked if they could provide a pad or something for me to lay on in case I leak since Im not going to trust a diaper 100% when Im inside a machine that probably costs more than my house and they said they could probably provide a pad or some towels.
A relative of mine said that during her MRIs it was much more cramped and that swallowing or blinking had a tendency to mess up the images however the tech I talked with told me that wasnt the case which is a relief
I am still nervous about the whole affair but talking to them has helped somewhat.
The scan will not involve contrast which is another relief
In regards to my situation In general I did try the medication Betmiga a month or two ago and it didnt work for me there may have been a slight decrease in urinary frequency however the accidents remained and the pain I experience may have even been worse
the pain I experience has been unpleasant to say the least lately Im getting it a lot lately and the incontinence is relentless as well but such is my current life
Im not happy with it I have had nights where Ive been crying a lot over the past month or so usually involving an accident and severe pain. I am currently waiting to see a counsellor as well
Anyway thats the current state of things I apologise for the way its written I have a tendency to leave for a while then return with a stilted enormous wall of text
if anyone wants to ask anything or give any advice feel free to
Id appreciate any posts
if anyone thinks that there is anything else I should ask the MRI techs that would also be a big help
