What causes bedwetting in adults post spinal epidural procedure?

I have a lot of back issues I was going in for a spinal epidural procedure I have had one before in another worked very well. But a week ago I started wetting the bed every night. Just once a night but every night never when I was sitting or walking. I do not feel anything from there to the middle of my thigh. No pain. If I am in bed and I get up for anything as soon as I get up oh my no matter how hard I try I don t make it more that three steps then it s Mt. Rushmore and I just can t stop. So my Back Dr will not do my procedure he said it sounds like a emergency to himwanted me to go to ER or Call my Primary Doctor asap tomorrow. It s been two nights without going at all at night but I m probably dehydrated instead. Would u consider this an emergency?
