urinary retention + shingles
My 77 year old mom is experiencing a shingles outbreak in her sacral/genital area. Started 3 weeks ago
and she has been unable to urinate and has had to be catheterized. Is urine retention associated with Shingles
a transient condition? If so, how long does the condition last? Is there a possibility of permanent nerve damage in that area? She was treated with antiviral medication shortly
after the appearance of the lesions.

Thanks
