Thread: tethered spine bladder and bowel problems

  1. #11
    My daughter saw a urologist at childrens hosptial ... He decided she did NOT need a urodynamics test. He said if her bladder had problems she would have no control. He said her pee leakage is behavioral. I dont beleive him that she just feels like leaking pee on herself because she'd rather smell bad than go to the bathroom.
    You're right; fire this guy; he's out of his league.

    Even if you need to travel a ways to see a good pediatric specialist remember those visits will be rare once you have all the tests done. A good pediatrician, look maybe for a younger new doctor open to working with a specialist, can handle everything else close to home. Shriner's Hospitals will also help at reduced fees or free if one is within a reasonable distance.

    I've said goodbye to several doctors who had no clue about bladders and bowels too.
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."
