Re: Always have to Pee
i dont really buy into the bladder/anxiety thing but thats just my own take on it.
a cystoscopy should find out if you have any issues in the bladder, prostate or urethra.
they also check your urine and blood. have it checked. the cystoscopy is nothing to worry about and doesnt hurt just a little sting at first. its a day case and you drive home afterwards. they also take any biopsies needed if they spot something.
if medication hasnt cleared up any suspected infections then this is what i would ask my doctor for.
ive had this and opted to try Botox to desensitise the bladder as i always felt like going but sometimes couldnt pass a drop.
i do think though that a bladder which has given trouble for years does take alittle time to settle back down after treatment so dont expect an overnight cure.
keep accurate records for one week of your drinking intake volume and what the drink is, time of peeing, type of pee (slow, dribbling, forcing out, easy, difficult etc) and if possible the volume of urine (use an old or cheap new measuring jug that you wont need for any other purpose-throw away after the week). hand the notes to your doctor as this will give him a great overview of whats happening. keep the record too in case you go to see a urologist.
