Thanks for your query.
If your report says a small overactive bladder without any obstruction, then you need medications which reduce the irritability of the bladder wall. These medications like tolterodine need to be taken under the supervision of a doctor.
Surgery may not have a significant role for your bladder problems.
Hope this helps
Good luck.
