I had a urolume placement a month ago to remedy frequency and urgency of urination. But a month later, I am practically incontinent with an irritated bladder: I believe the term is \"precipitancy\". The urge to urinate comes suddenly and I have just seconds to avoid an accident. Will I ever recover my natural sphincter responses? Another urologist I spoke to is strongly against the urolume procedure which increased my anxiety...
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.
From the symptoms, it looks like urge incontinence. Symptoms can range from mild leaking to uncontrollable wetting. It can happen to anyone, but it becomes more common with age. Most bladder control problems happen when muscles are too weak or too active.
There are other causes of incontinence, such as prostate problems and nerve damage. Treatment depends on the type of problem you have and what best fits your lifestyle. It may include simple exercises, medicines, special devices or procedures prescribed by your doctor, or surgery.
I suggest you to consult a urologist and get it evaluated.
