Lumbar compression, Bladder leakage

I fractured my coccyx about 6 months ago after a fall. That has since healed, however I have compressed L3-S1 (little disc space shown on xray) I have sever pain in my lower back, hips and down one leg to my foot, also occasional tingling and weakness in this leg. I am taking narcotics, nsaids, acetaminophen and codeine. I have tried physiotherapy, pilates, chiropractic. I am due to go back to my doctor in 3 weeks to see if I need to get a referral. He always asks about bowel or bladder changes. Lately I have been having light bladder leakage, even though I regularly do pelvic floor exercises. I did not have this problem before. I also feel like when I need to pass urine, I must rush, where I used to always be able to "hold it in". Is this a concern with my back problems? Should I return to my doctor sooner than 3 weeks?

Hi there!

This could be due to the back issues and if related would require a surgical intervention to the spinal issue. I would suggest consulting your treating orthopedician/ neurologist for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
