Thread: Frustrating Dr appt

  1. #1

    Default Frustrating Dr appt

    My wife and I went back to see my urologist yesterday and he told us that my tests had come back relatively normal, not visible growths or such and my bladder retention test came back normal. He said my bed wetting is being caused by sleep disorders. My wife and I both asked him about the day time issues and he kept referring to the sleep disorder. I explained that I am still having leaking issues during the day and have had a couple of experience (luckily both at home ) after long (Hour or so) drives where I have flooded and it soaked through my protection (one day was a pull up and other Day a attends with waistband). He didn't seem concerned and said it is my sleep disorder. I am not seeing the nexus between my sleep disorder and my day wetting. He gave us a bunch of medical terms and said basically I have a somewhat weak bladder. I am going for a scrotal ultrasound then the following week back to him so they can run a camera up inside of me to see the inside of my bladder.
    Has anyone else felt put off by their Dr like this?
    Thanks,
    John

    First of all, sorry it's been so frustrating!!!! I really hope you can find another urologist and maybe have better than a shot in the dark for an answer.

    Secondly, it took doctors (and me) a long time to equate my back issues with my urinary incontinence, so I understand the burning desire to just have a friggin' answer. Good luck babe.

    Um, if your doctor won't answer your questions, time for a new doctor obviously.

    I'd ditch him asap.

    It sounds like your doctor is less than effective. My partner had a similar experience (with a different condition).

    I would love to ditch him but unfortunatley he is the specialist tht my insurance pays for. The only other one in the are takes PPO only.

    Go ask a second opinion in another, maybe more specialized, Hospital. Maybe on your problem, maybe to do tests to find out if you have a sleeping disorder. If you do, they should be able to find out.

    I do have a sleep disorder, I have sleep apena and I think that is the cuse of my night wetting. I just ton't see how it is affecting my day time bladder control. the doctor I am seeing is in a urology clinic, l went to them figuring that since this is all they deal with he would be able to help more.

    Point still stands, You can ask quite any doctor for a second opinion, which shouldn't take him/her more then a few minutes to go over your files. Most insurances cover it, and you got the right to get another doctor if it is not an emergency situation. Although, on second thoughts, suing your insurance company might be a bit of a problem if you ever want to easily get a refund for medical issues again.

    Part of what he has said could be true. Sleep disorder can cause night wetting but not normally day wetting unless you easily fall asleep during the day.

    As other have said, you can ask for a second opinion. Call your insurance and tell them you are requesting a second opinion and please provide a list of qualified doctors you can see.

    My local urologist referred me to another more experienced one at Vanderbilt. After test and treatment, he isn't offering anything that I can live with. So diapers is all that I have left and I can deal with that.
