Bowel and Bladder Issues?
I have a history of a L5-S1 fusion in March of 2010. The past few months I have been having increasing issues of urge incontinence and wetting the bed. I also have problems with feeling an urge to evacuate my bowels.
Saw family doctor. Urinalysis was negative for a bladder/kidney infection. Sent to OB/GYN. No organ prolapse. Wanted to start medication which I refused. I am already taking at least 15 pills a day and the urinary medications are severely constipating. I have enough issues with that. He stated he is thinking it may related to my lumbar fusion and the spinal nerves. Anyone out there experience this?
Ps-Have also had a 4 level cervical fusion in 2004.
