Can hold a litre of fluid without voiding; do I have an enlarged bladder?

Yes: One should try to empty their bladder every 2-3 hours to avoid bladder emptying problems in the future. Chronic overdistention may lead to inability to void in the future. In the most severe cases kidney failure can occur. I see this problem once or twice a year. "never pass up the opportunity to urinate and void frequently".

I have an enlarged bladder and don't leak. But if even small and I cough, I do leak. Why?

Increased pressure: When you cough you increase your abdominal pressure which presses on your bladder forcing out urine. The treatment may be getting the appropriate treatment for your cough. I often hear this complaint in women with cough variant asthma.

18 week fetal US indicated enlarged bladder. Kidneys measured normal. Amniotic fluid normal. Any advice?

18 week fetal US indicated enlarged bladder. Kidneys measured normal. Amniotic fluid normal. Any advice?

Full bladder US?: If the ultrasound was done with a full bladder as is usually done, then the pregnancy will distort and displace the bladder at 18 weeks, so it is difficult to say that the "bladder was enlarged". Since the amniotic fluid content is OK. As well as the fetus then "no worries" at this juncture.

My uncle just undergone TURP for enlarged prostate gland. Post surgery he has hypotonic bladder. Is it curable!? What is the treatment

My uncle just undergone TURP for enlarged prostate gland. Post surgery he has hypotonic bladder. Is it curable!? What is the treatment

Difficult problem: If recent there may still be recovery, the first step in treatment is a good evaluation, usually with urodynamic studies to determine if it is truly a weak bladder vs a persistent obstruction. If the bladder is weak, but he can void and does not experience repeat infections then it may be best to do nothing beyond behavioral strategies. The only real treatment is a catheter, preferably self-cath.

How can you suspect a bladder to be neurogenic and what would be the treatment?

See your PCP first.: Neurogenic bladder sphincter dysfunction is usually a lesion in any level of the nervous system from the cortex, the spine and the peripheral nervous system.

What is the treatment for neurogenic bladder?

Individualized: There are different types of neurogenic bladder. Common causes might be multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury or stroke. In general, the bladder's function is to store and void urine, both of which can be disrupted. Goals of treatment should be to allow low pressure storage of urine and adequate emptying at a convenient time. Self catherization and medication are often used to accomplish this.

Which antibiotics are used for bladder infections treatment?

Which antibiotics are used for bladder infections treatment?

Sensitivities needed: Best ways to treat UTI's are to first confirm that ones symptoms are from a documented bacterial infection. This is confirmed when a urine sample has been sent for culture and sensitivities and a bacteria grows and a panel of sensitivities is listed. This process usually takes 2 days. Pending the sensitivities the medical care provider selects which antibiotic would be best for the patient.
