My 8 year old has incontinence issues

My 8 year old son is having incontinence issues.  It happens on a very regular basis.  He tells us that sometimes he cannot tell or feel that he needs to go.  On a bad day, it can happen 2-3 times in one day.  We have been taking turns waking him up at an earlier time to prevent the bedwetting but can still wake up 45 minutes earlier wet when he was dry before.  We have a urologist appointment scheduled for this month and would like some insight if there is a physical problem.  Thank you for your help.
