Yesterday, my husband and I went to the doctors office to do a urodynamics test. It was the most embarrassing thing I have went through with my husband. I felt like I could have done this test on him if I had the directions on a piece of paper like the nurse did.
When we left I felt so AAAGHHHHH! I just wanted to cry and it wasn't me being proded.
It was my understanding that urodynamics eval would cover these items: Post Void Residual, Cystometrogram, Electromyogram, Leak point pressure and Uroflow.
It seems to me that none of these could accurately be done since he couldn't void on his own and can't feel sensations below injury. What exactly was this test suppose to tell us?
They kept saying he was having bladder spasms. Is that a good thing? Is that why he is leaking? His bladder use to hold way more than he is getting out now. The doc put him on ditropan xl 25 mg a day to help with his leaking. It worked great to begin and we can still roll him over in bed without soaking bed, but now he cannot go more than 4 hours without cathing or he gets soaked.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
