    1. Thank you

  2. Mine hasn't emptied properly in about 10 years, so you are not alone! My neurologist sent me to a urologist when I the problem persisted, particularly due to the frequent UTIs. A specialist can tell you the best course of action.

    It is manageable. Take care of yourself.

    1. Hi Deb, I had the same problem. Part of my problem was chronic constipation which prevented bladder emptying. I take medication for that. I saw a Urologist and had bladder tests and take medication for my bladder and a low dose antibiotic to ward off the UTIs. This has worked great for me. Good luck!
