    Cath 2y post, now leakage?? Sudgestions?

    Been Doing Intermited Cath 4-6h dep on intake for last 2+ years. Now Suddenly Im having leakage, ranging from 1/2 hour - 3h after cathin? everyday for a week so far. Totaly Random? Any Ideas of what it may be? Had only 1 UTI so far, could it be a sign of another UTI onset?

    Definitely sounds like it. A UTI makes the bladder more irritable and hence the leakage.

        It is not a UTI if you just have leaking. It is more likely that your bladder has changed neurologically, with lower capacity and higher pressures, which is common over the years. Once a UTI is ruled out or treated, you should have urodynamics repeated. This test should be done every 2-3 years if everything is going OK with your bladder, and more often if it is not.
