Frequent urge to empty bladder, have 3 kidneys. No improvement with Valerin, do not want to try diapers, chemicals. Other options?

Hi I have three kidneys and one repaired holding tank, which has much urgency to empty about every hour. I had been told Valerian helps, but when I looked it up, it said nothing about helping the bladder hold back. I am too young for diapers, and don t want chemicals if possible. What else can I do? My bladder repair was in 2004. The urgency is recent, just finished a course of antibiotics for e-coli infection in the bladder. How can you help me? I am on a disability pension and can t afford this cost. Sorry to bother you. Have a nice day.

Urologist 's  Response
Your predominant complaint is urgency. It may be because of infection, overactive bladder or small capacity bladder. You have not mentioned what repair was done on your bladder. After completing the course of antibiotics, you can get further investigated. First you need to assess your bladder capacity which can be done by a radiological examination called cystogram. After that you may need urodynamic test to see if your bladder is overactive or not. Please consult a urologist.
