spinal stenosis and bladder problems
My current spine problems are stenosis of the cervical & lumbar spine. I have numbness in the lower left leg and have some balance issues. So it appears that the stenosis is progressing. My orthopedist who I recently saw want a current CT Myelogram donw which I am in the process of obtaining.
There is concern of doing surgery since I am in Kidney failure and diabetic but if I dont do it the future means bladder problems and paralysis in the long term.
Today i saw a urologist due to urinary frequency. IT is not prostrate problems the PSA was 2.5 and he doesnt think my problems are due to the diabetes.
He has requested a renal and bladder ultrasound plus a test called eurodynamics which determine how the bladder is functioining . His thoughts are that its all related to the spinal issues.
Can anyone tell me about the tests? And if the problems are related to the spinal stenosis what is the treatment for the bladder issues? Medications? Surgery? Anything you can tell me would be appreciated.
Thanks for listening.
