  • I stopped cathing. Fuck that shit. I always had a uti. Now i press my prostate and pee comes out 200 ml at a time. Sci since july 2019.

  • This video made sense to us. My wife has a SP tube cause she can’t get out of bed cause of PPMS. I have EP so I wear pads at work.

  • I hate it having this problem but do notice eating certain food, drink promote urgency so I’ve eliminated it. I drink green tea with ginger which help and drinking room temperature water is also helpful. I bought cranberry tablets to avoid uti from a mountain rose they have organic herbs spice and oils. I. stop drinking coffee, store bought juice, most importantly soda. When out I time myself and scheduled to urinate every 4to6hrs so I know a public is near by. I know this is alot I refuse to let MS to control me but. me control it. I can say my incidents have been minimal. I use a cane when I’m out only and incorporated cardio exercise, yoga so I guess I’ll see where this take me, I’m 44yrs diagnosed june 2014 rrms.

  • I know this is about MS, BUT I don’t think this covers MS related bowel issues.

    I mean, what if you can urinate normally again but you haven’t taken a dump in 3 days even if you’ve been relatively active?

  • Very empathic and sensitive doctors make such a positive difference. This video is very helpful to watch before you talk to your own doctor, because it will give you the confidence and also provide hope that something CAN be done. Thank you xx

  • I find I eat and drink normally at home up to 8pm and then nothing after, going to bed at 1pm with bathroom being my last stop right after finishing daily exercises. When I go out, I drink nothing (which is not good) as washroom for someone as handicapped as myself are hard to find. Truly handicapped washrooms for people in wheelchairs are almost not existent. They assume you can walk and have no room for a wheelchair to turn around. I need exercises to strengthen my bladder muscles. Can someone help?  Please do not tell me to get down on a floor as if I can not walk, I surely can not get off a floor.Thanks Linda age 62

  • Bladder and bowel problems are difficult for people with MS to talk about, much less manage. They can keep people from living as fully as possible with MS. Seeing an MS specialist may help find ideas for management.
