Hi,Customer, You do not have to live with these symptoms , this is something that can be perfectly managed .

You should consult an urologist specialist to evaluate you .

The doctor can treat you ,at first with medications like anticholinergic medications ( in case that your bladder muscle contracts excessively ) or urecholine (this medication is used when the bladder muscle is weakened ,the patient accumulates urine that flows out uncontrollably , this medication will help to strengthen the bladder muscle and avoid accumulating this excessive urine ) .

If the medications does not relieve your symptoms , the doctor could correct this problem surgically , reforcing the bladder sphincter ,so you can control your urinary habit or urination again .

If you like the answer, please click accept . A bonus will always be sincerely appreciated .
