    Leaky Bladder

    I am a T6-7 para. I use a catheter 5x a day to drain my bladder. I have noticed that I am starting to leak quite a bit. What would be the best solution to this? I could use a condom catheter to catch any leaking urine but I would still need to cath 5x a day to empty the bladder. Do I have to go to a foley catheter?

    Are you taking any anticholinergic medications like oxybutynin to help control bladder spasms?

    Have you talked to your urologist about bladder Botox injections?

    When was your last urodynamics study?

    All the best,
