Bedwetting Toilet Training
Toilet training myself for incontinence with scheduled voiding, kegels, etc. Isnt there a surgical fix?
Toilet training, is the process of training a young child to use a toilet or "potty chair" for urination and defecation . A child who can walk from room to room, pull his pants up & down & say "pee-pee", " poo-poo" or "potty" when he senses the urge is ready to toilet train.

3.9 year old with autism seems ready for potty training but won't sit on potty long enough. Is the iPotty (potty with iPad stand) a good idea for him?
Do you really want : to pair those behaviors? Once you do, transition to a regular toilet is going to be tough! Use his developmental, not chronological, age, for readiness: Can he stay dry for 2 hrs., walk from room to room, recognize the urge to go, use a word to say so (e.g., potty) & pull his pants up & down? If so, use a Little Looster stool & read " Steps to Independence" by Baker, ~$30 on Amazon.com. ...Read more

"Should" is wrong ?: Up to 15% of boys wet their beds from as little as once/month to multiple times every night. Resolves in about 15%/year without treatment.

Frequent urge to urinate for months,small amounts 25+times a day,no incontinence,no UTI, no IC,cystoscopy ok,seen 4 urologists,very tired.Please help!
Could incontinence: I don't think it's easy to say that you don't have IC. The symptoms you are describing could either be IC, it could be urge incontinence, it could be a prolapse of the bladder or other pelvic floor dysfunction. You could have issues with bowels pressing on the bladder. What medicine have you tried besides antibiotics? I would recommend bladder training and possibly botox. ...Read more
64 yo male hospitalized 3 months can now stand & walk but cannot urinate standing, just sitting using a pee bottle or sitting on the toilet. Ideas?
Interesting: It is usually the other way around. Has a urologist been involved? Were urodynamic studies done including post void residuals, flow measurements and bladder pressure measurements along with good neurological evaluation from the lumbar spine down including the sacral plexus nerves. I know this is medical speak, but discuss these with treating doctor. Complicated issue and needs proper eval. ...Read more

I sometimes experience "post-micturition convulsions" (pee shivers) many minutes before i actually urinate & daily urge incontinence. Possible causes?
Cause unknown: I would recommend that you see a urologist regarding your urinary urgency. A urinary tract infection and other causes need to be ruled out. In spite of the fact that 83% of men and 56% of women experience pee shivers at some point during their life, the cause remains unknown and largely uninvestigated.. ...Read more
