The symptoms of Neurogenic Bladder can be different from person to person. Some people are unable to hold their urine and other people are unable to empty. Some patients will have a combination of the two. These symptoms occur commonly with major pelvic surgery, Polio, MS, diabetes, parkinsonism, and strokes, herniated disc, spinal cord trauma, brain tumors, and pelvic trauma.
If you have any of these medical conditions and have bladder problems, Dr. Boone would analyze you with a Bladder Diary and test your bladder nerves using a Urodynamic study.
