perfect timing of my appointment today since my bladder is acting up and feels like I been punched in the kidney. my urodynamics tests showed an usually small bladder and distrusion problems. So we discussed treatment and told her I finally got diagnosed with MS and she said well that explains the problems. She put me on a gel but feels like this isnt going to help because the drugs dry you out and with difficulty with swallowing being dried out wont help. I have an appointment next week to learn how to self cath so when I have these days were I cant void I can get some relief but she also mentioned botox injections into the bladder has anyone done this? I am nervous about self cathing but I know it will be more of a relief then what I am feeling now
