I have a pushing on left wall of my colon, near the anus. I am told I retain 256 ml, by ultrasound test. I think I urinate normally, I can feel urge. Catheter inserted is very painful, my pelvic muscles are very tight and cramping. I can feel myself urinating into the bag.

On March 15, 2012 I endured a major spinal surgery, it had to be done. Spring of this year after having an EMG done I now have nerve damage according to the test, nerve damage after said surgery. Since then I've been having bladder control problems.

I had a panproctocolectomy (removal of large bowel and rectum) nearly three years ago as a result of nerve damage. I now have no call to urinate. In other words, I don't know when I need to urinate. Although I just go every few hours and so am not incontinent, it is very stressful. The medics say nothing can be done. Would it help to see a neurologist? I have been left with a permanent ileostomy.
