Thread: urodynamics test tomorrow

    urodynamics test tomorrow

    son is having test done tomorrow morning and was wondering
    if being constipated is a problem? They did ask last week if he was, and
    he wasnt, so I am concerned now because it seems he might be. I thought they were asking because
    the antibiotics sometimes cause constipation. Thank you

    Usually before doing the test a day before they will ask me to insert the Ducolax suppository to remove the stools from the anus. This is because they are putting something(tube?) into the anus for pressure related reasons, which is why maybe they ask if your son is constipated.

    he is 6 mos post, actually, 2nd one. but he really doesnt want me around when
    he goes to see this doctor so I not educated on what goes on, but I need to
    be, so I will reserach some.

    Just saw this post and it sounds like the test has already occurred but the anal probe works better if there is not alot of stool.
