That needs to be addressed by your urologist or urogynecologist, they can help

He said people would just think your mad and laugh at you then whilst I was in hospital he would go around friends saying I was going mad as there was nothing wrong with me

Dr Brims :

Well the good thing is you know you are not mad

Dr Brims :

What other questions can I help you answer on this condition?

Customer:

I know but it still doesn't help thing's now :(

Dr Brims :

I understand

Customer:

In old age is the bladder likely to go the other way after going in to retention so many times

Dr Brims :

it usually goes the other way as you age

Customer:

But does it tend to get weeker than normally

Dr Brims :

The bladder may become weaker and leads to incontinence with age rather than causing retention

Customer:

That's what I'm worrying about as he used to jam bottles and things inside of me inbetween really rlugh sex

Dr Brims :

It is impossible to predict if it will occur, for now it is best not to think about it

Customer:

I don't usually but just feeling extra worried as he is going to be re bailed next wednesday

Dr Brims :

I am sorry to hear that

Dr Brims :

Is there anything else I can help you answer on this topic?

Customer:

I'm woundering if bail conditions change its an indication on how all investigations are going

Dr Brims :

I'm sorry, I cannot answer that, I am a doctor, only a lawyer or law enforcement officer can answer that

Dr Brims :

Are you there?

Customer:

I know but was explaining why I was feeling the way I do

Dr Brims :

Okay, I understand

Dr Brims :

Is there another question I can help you answer on this subject?
