Customer Question
I have radiation cystitis...

I have radiation cystitis with OAB severe. Due to problem of leakage, I have an artificial cuff on my urethra AMS 800 Urinary Control System. I works pretty good, but I still have leakage and have to wear pads. I have tried numerous medicines for OAB and even two rounds of Botox shots. My OAB is a severe problem especially evenings sitting and watching TV, and worse when I go to bed. I am up anywhere from 4-10 times for bathroom. Any suggestion. I also have suffered with Radiation Proctitis of Colon and two weeks ago had a Colostomy installed. Any help you might suggest for bladder? Doug

Doctor's Assistant: Is the condition chronic, or acute?

Chronic and has gotten worse.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had prostate cancer surgery 10yrs ago and 38 rounds of Radiation 9yrs ago. The cystitis hit me 4yrs ago and have gone thru HBOC twice. Proctitis hit me 2yrs ago and one of the doctors there reocomemed Colostomy.

The artificial cuff could be not tight enough. The cuff might be replaced with a smaller one. You should talk to your urologist.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
