I have constant urinary retention and with several antibiotics, no results. I am miserable.

I am facing this problem of urinary retention right now. I can't urinate since December. I have done all kinds of tests and image exams and nothing has been found yet.

I suffer from chronic urine retention for 10 years. I self-catheterize three times a day. I have tried the InterStim implant but after 5 years and no real change, I had it removed. I want to start an advocate group or support group for other women like me, I just don’t know where to start. It seems I will never get help.
