Nothing special, calm, await results, teatment based on probable cause

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

I am sorry you are experiencing bladder dysfunction symptoms. I know how distressing this could be. However, considering your age, I think much is can be done to improve your symptoms.

There are no specific recommendations as you await your results. However, I strongly suggest you drink much fluids.

Depending on the KUB results from your urologist, a management plan based on the intensity of symptoms and probable causes of this condition can be drawn up then.

Antibiotics might not be very necessary at this point in time, especially as you could get results soon. Treatment really depends on the cause.

I know its really difficult to wait as such. But I am afraid you will just have to be patient as the treatment plan depends on the cause as shall be shown by your test results.

kind regards as I wish you the best of health.

Hi,

Thank you so much for getting back to me. Ok, i wasn't sure if there was something i could do in the mean time so i appreciate you confirming that there really isn't anything at this stage and at this time. I will just be patient as my tests are this wednesday and thursday so not to far along to have to wait.

I was told to come with a full bladder for the urodynamic test, how much do i need to drink to fill up my bladder all the way?

Thank you,
XXXXXXX
