Hello,

I probably can't tell  you more than what your urologic work up has revealed.  The two major things to be concerned about are new onset urge incontinence and a vesico- or uretero-vaginal fistula (a connection that has formed between the vagina and the bladder or vagina and the ureter--the ureter is the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder).  Perhaps a dye test could be helpful (ie, back fill the bladder with blue dye and place a tampon in the vagina.  If the tampon turns blue a fistula is present.)  If not, a urodynamic study may be helpful.

Best of luck,

Dr. Downing
