Hi,

It would be best to discuss the problem with your doctor. There are cases where there would be bleeding involved, due to injury in the bladder. These cases can be offered irrigation (this would mean the bladder will be catheterized in order to instill an agent to control the bleeding. Uncontrolled bleeding may be corrected by more invasive means, involving cutting off the blood supply, or removing the bladder entirely. Your post is a little vague, but it seems that the problem involves a difficulty holding urine, or an increased urge to void despite the bladder not being entirely full. For this case, it may simply need some time to heal, if there is still some swelling. Stay positive.
