Question: I am having severe bladder problems. I have little control over my urination and sometimes in the evening it is painful with little product. I have an appointment with a urologist tomorrow, but was interested in seeing what I might be in for.

Brief Answer:
Kegel exercises should help

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Urinary incontinence could be due to loss of the neuromuscular control as a consequence of advancement in age. I would insist you to try Kegel exercises i.e. alternate contraction and relaxation of the vaginal muscles (as well as the muscles for urinary control) and as these pelvic muscles strengthen you would have better control over your urine.

Let me know if I could help further.

I had radical prostatectomy in 2007 which resulted incomplete urinary incontinence. In 2010 I had the implantation of the AMS 800 artificial sphincter and it has worked extremely well, but I have frequent trips, more than desirable, to urinate. I have been on VesiCare on and off for about 3 years at the lowest dosage and experienced constipation, even with supplements to prevent it. Recently I tried the Oxytrol patch and have found them to work very satisfactorly. Now after about 1 month of use, I find that I am having loose stools and some diarrea. How is it that one anti-cholinergic gave me constipation and another diarrea?
