Sorry. I had to get back to my afternoon clinic -- busy day.

At this point I think the best thing for your son to do would be to gather up copies of all his medical records and travel to a large University Teaching hospital. At an institution like that your son could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.

The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is an excellent example of just such a place as this. That being said there are many excellent teaching hospitals all across the country and I am sure that there is one near you.

They would also be able to provide state-of-the-art psychological therapy to address his "shy bladder" issue.
Does this make sense to you?
