I have lost ability to void urine due to nerve damage after several back surgeries. I was fine until 2 weeks before my 5th surgery 7 months ago. I am now cathed several times a day and night. I was told that this loss will usually return and I will be able to urinate on my own again, but then again, maybe not. A neurogenic bladder keeps me from leading a normal daily life. Can anyone respond with a similar experience?
