    intrithical baclofen pump and the bladder

    as you know I just got this pump and so far I am healing pretty good other than this damn head ache..I have a Question for other members out there and/ or our medical staff.

    I have been noticing that when the urge to relieve my bladder comes it is very intence.. it is one of those "I could pee forever" feelings but when I get to the bathroom nothing happens, I have to sit there for a while and really concetrate on the task at hand, then there is only a small amount that comes out(300cc).. is this a normal feeling after getting the pump put in? or is this some way my body is accepting the object?

    my urine looks fine and I have been drinking plenty of water (don't do soda)..I just go to the bathroom all the time and as I said have to concentrate more than usual

    our Wise Young set a poll up for me to find out if the baclofen pump has made any changes to your bladder.. this has me a little concerned.. if you have a baclofen pump please take a moment to do this survey..

    thank you for your time , darrel

    this is the only thing that I have noticed that I don't like, but I want to make sure that this problem is caused buy the pump..so far nobody else seems to have had bladder problems, so far I can deal with having to consetrate longer in order to go.
