I've been going down the fused road off and on for the last four years or so. I think, it all blends together after a while. I'll say my pain has been helped but minimally. anyway on to the question!
Lately my back has been hurting more. The usual pain after doing things I'm not supposed to because I feel like a useless lump. My wife looks cute when she tries to get mad at me so that's a little bit of why I do it too.
I've been noticing that my bladder sphincter will occasionally relax and might even cause the slightest dribble. It's the same feeling as letting go while trying to pee normally but it starts and stops super fast.
Has anyone else experienced the tiny relaxing and contraction of their bladder sphincter?
So far I've been lucky in the pee and poop area. I think I've only lost bowel and bladder control once which led to emergency surgery. It seems as though this bladder thing has started since my pain has increased the last couple months but I can't be completely sure. My attention might be drawn to it more because things are as out of the ordinary as they can get with a back that has metal and plastic everywhere.
I always mean to bring it up to my pain doctor but always forget since I'm usually in agony when I'm in the office.
I'm probably rambling thanks to a morning pop and Percocet. Which is actually helping and will get me to my next saline and steroid caudal injection. Loopy to be sure but I'll take after hurting so bad!
