    Getting bowel and bladder back

    Hi - Does anyone have experience with actually getting their bowel and bladder back to normal - or at least close to normal?

    I got my bladder back about 1 year after injury. I had to get off of all incontinence medication to be able to fully void. My bladder is not perfect. I have an overactive bladder so i pretty much have to get to the bathroom as soon as i get the urge but it's great not to have to cath. i think my bowel returned about 3 years after my injury.

    I learnt the tapping method from my roommate in the hospital (nurses were showing her, not me..... so she just taught me).
    Since then, I void fairly normally... but like JennyB, I have to find a washroom fairly quickly after I get the urge.... or else I start getting AD symptoms.
