Correcting the cause of the problem, usually a cystocele, will help to empty the bladder and maintain reasonable post void residues. Self catherization can also be used to empty the bladder

If there is no physical obstruction like a fallen bladder then looking at your meds is needed. If still. O results a device called interstim is the next option- its like a pacemaker for your bladder.

Overflow incontinece usually results from anatomical obstruction to normal urine flow (eg. BPH in a male, cystocele in a female) or a significant neurological problem. Either way, one should be evaluated with urodynamics and cystoscopy by a urologist.

Urine retention. Stopping meds that might be the source, correcting prolapse, looking for obstruction. If none of these exist then biofeedback or interstim are options.

First cause must be diagnosed, i.e. Enlarged prostate, urethral stricture or neurogenic bladder etc. By urologist or urogynecologist. May require urodynamic testing, cystoscopy etc. Or cardura. May respond to Alpha adreneric blocker medications such as flomax, (tamsulosin) hytrin, Minipress or cardura. May require surgery or intermittent clean self-catheterization.
