Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding.

What causes a low functioning bladder?

What causes a low functioning bladder?

Muscle or nerve...: Problems. The bladder's purpose is to store urine then empty fully. If the muscle is unable to accommodate urine or squeeze to expel it, it will function poorly. The muscles are controlled by nerves, which deliver the sense of filling, then coordinate muscle contraction. Ms, spinal cord injuries, diabetes, bladder thickening, obstruction, scarring, interstitial cystitis, can affect these systems.

I'm inncontinent and need a new bladder?

I'm inncontinent and need a new bladder?

Incontinence: I do not believe there is anything such as a bladder transfer or new bladder. Sometimes in severe cancer cases a bladder is reshaped using other of the patient's tissues. But, incontinence can be treated much easier than that. The physician will just need to do a thorough investigation and give you a plan for healing.

Can also occur as result of aging & lack of estrogen production after menopause. Suggest you consult with a uro-gynecologist or urologist specializing in female urologic disorders. There is help out there.

Cystitis, obstruction: Inflammation or utis cause bladder thickening. Bladder outflow obstruction, e.g. Tight, non relaxing bladder neck, prostate enlargement, urethral vaves or a urethral stricture causes all cause bladder trabeculation (enlargement of bladder muscle fibers). Also neurogenic bladder, detrussor-sphincter dyssynergia (sphincter conractswith voiding) but should relax & bladder reflux all cause thickening.

Simple test.: A bladder scan is a simple office test that uses an ultrasound to measure the volume of the bladder. Don't urinate prior to your visit...Wait until you see them and get permission first. You will lie back, and an ultrasound probe with some gel will be placed above your pubic bone.

What causes ecoli to get n bladder?

See below.: Generally, for women, bacteria from feces (particularly e. Coli) gets in contact with the urethral opening. The bacteria are then able to enter the urethra and travel the relatively short distance (compared with men) to the bladder where it can cause infection - a uti. One of the best prevention strategies besides daily hygiene is to wipe front to back, not vice versa.

What are symptoms of a fallen bladder?

What are symptoms of a fallen bladder?

Discomfort: Fallen or prolapsed bladder means the vaginal tissue overlying the back bladder wall is pushing out through the vaginal opening. The tissue should be moist, and when it is protruding, it dries out a bit. This condition also makes it easier to get a bladder infection because the opening of the bladder is distorted, and the bladder doesn't empty well. A pessary or surgery can help.
