Does anyone know of ANY treatment other than CIC (self-cath) that is out there besides InterStim? I have neurogenic bladder and have tried the usual drugs (Flomax etc.)
I am very frustrated because I have to self-cath EVERY time I need to urinate, otherwise nothing will come out. This has been going on for about 8 years. I believe I was born with detrusor sphincter dyssynergia, but am otherwise healthy (no MS or spinal cord injury). This complete retention has been a gradual process, I used to be able to void on my own, in small amounts, and urinated very frequently.
I would just like to know if there are any other treatments out there. I am very sad to think I will be reliant on self-cath for the rest of my life.
