Will a urodynamics procedure require me to have someone

Customer Question
Will a urodynamics procedure...

Will a urodynamics procedure require me to have someone drive me to and from the appointment or will I be able to do so?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes, I had this procedure many years ago, but I do not recall if I drove myself. My gyn recommended this procedure now.

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

Medicine--88 mcg levothyroxine. I have been leaking (urge) large amounts of urine since May, and I get up 1-3 times nightly.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
