Absolutely: The bladder is controlled locally by a circuit of nerves that go to the spine at the lower back area but there is a circuit of nerves that also go to the brain so that you can think about and determine when you want to go to the bathroom. Disruption of that "brain" circuit can affect the information going to the bladder and cause voiding problems. ...Read more

This could then result in bladder/bowel dysfunction. Your surgeon likely did the laminectomy to relieve the compression of your cauda equina so as to prevent the problem from worsening. ...Read more
I had sepsis yr ago wen my apendix ruptured I jst had a bladder infection n was told to treat carefully am I more likely to get it bc I've had it b4?
No: Women do get bladder infections more often than men do.

Is a gall bladder flush safe for my 11 year-old? My son's appendics almost ruptured and was removed in september. At the time a gall stone showed up as well on his x-ray. I would much rather do a flush that is safe than have him go through surgery again.
There: There is nothing in authentic medical literature that refers to a "gallbladder flush." I have had several patients mention this to me and my advice is to not do this.

I agree with the other surgeons taht if he is symtomatic from this then treatment would be laparoscopic cholecystectomy. ...Read more
