I have had numbness in my genital area for the past several months following a back injury. Mine is a W C case. I was referred back to the spine surgeon who did my neck and back surgeries. I am not having total loss with bladder and bowel, so they brushed it off.
Now I have leaking issues, but have trouble emptying my bladder. When I woke up this morning the skin around the urethra feels painful when pressed. Surface of skin still is numb, but it's like I still have feeling inside. I do not know if now I have a bladder infection ? I have never had one before! Should I go to the Quick care? Or wait to call the surgeon back on Monday?
Also, my surgeon thinks my symptoms are from MS, he wants me to get tested. My MRI shows that I still have nerve impingement at the levels that I had surgery to correct last year, but now the surgeon says he cannot do anything more for me? I get the feeling he thinks I'm lying about my symptoms! Now I don't trust him anymore to do what is necessary to help me! What do I do?
