I saw another posting, about someone not able 2 empty there bladder. I was in an acdnt 2 years ago, and I was told that the nerves were damanged and it takes about a year for them to come back. It's now been 2 years and I still can't release. Everything else seems fine, does anyone have any experiance, or help for me? I've seen a ton of Dr's... It seems to have them stumped.

hi there, this happened to me when my daughter was born. my nerves in my bladder were damaged due to having an epidural and having a full bladder fr 26 hours with no catheter. i was catherterised for 2 weeks and had to wear incontinence pads for 7 weeks.

it was awful as i was only 20 and thought i would be forever like this. luckily my feeling came back gradually and i am now fully healed but i can sympathise with how you are feeling.

i really hope you get better soon and i hope you find some answers Smile
