Urodynamic testing

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi I have an appointment to see the urologist consultant at the local hospital next week and was wondering what to expect?

I had a urethral catheter fitted in March after having urninary retention following a nose operation (don't know how that works!) and have also had a failed trial without catheter in April. I had an ultrasound of my bladder done but haven't been told the results as of yet.

I was just wondering what would happen at this testing and how would it work with a catheter in? I didn't understand how they could measure the flow of urinie if it's coming out a tube? I haven't really been told what will happen on the day so I'm just looking to see if anyone else has had this testing done and what to expect really. Any replays would be greatly appreciated

    Go to YouTube and ask 'urodynamic testing procedure' and all wiil be revealed'

    Ask how accuruate a diagnostic tool it is. When I asked Uro who did my cystoscopy he said it is only worthwhile about 50% of the time. I will be interested to hear what your one says.

    yes look on line basically they will fill your bladder through a catherter possibly the one you have in then when you feel really full they will get you to pass urine oujt again they will look at the speed and whether yiu clear your bladder - which you are probably not doing

    Thanks I'll have a look online and see what they say. I did look on google and could only find information on it when you have urinary incontinence.

    But if I can't urinate on my own without the catheter how can they tell the speed and if I can clear it by myself?

    Thanks for your responses!
