    LEAKING BLADDER??

    ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO I STARTED TO LEAK ALL THE TIME TO THE POINT THAT NOW I NEED TO WEAR DEPENDS EVERYDAY, COULD ANYONE TELL ME WHAT MIGHT BE THE CAUSE OF THIS?? I CAN NOT TELL WHEN I HAVE TO GO, BUT IF I PUSH REAL HARD, I CAN START TO URINATE WITHOUT CATHING..

    If you are able to start a stream by pushing, it only means you are able to overcome the resistance by using your abdominal muscles and other internal pressures. Though more convenient than cathing, it isn't necessarily a good thing. It is rare for a person to be able to empty their bladder by using strain alone. If you are already self cathing, I would recommend using only that technique as it is the most effective and friendly to your bladder. If you are curious about other techniques for emptying your bladder, these should be discussed with your SCI doctor or urologist to make sure you aren'd going to do damage to your bladder or upper urinary tracts by using them.
