Inactive bladder, with no elasticity

Posted by jdbjsmith @jdbjsmith, Oct 29 8:03pm

My bladder is totally stretched out with no elasticity left in it. Has anyone had the same diagnosis? Has anyone had the transurethral resection of the prostate and has it helped in any way?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Kidney & Bladder Support Group.

Same diagnosis of my bladder. I have a severely enlarged prostate . I have had a Foley catheter since July. Waiting for second opinion in a couple of weeks.

Had a bladder diverticulum, and they operated on bladder to remove and also did a turp at the same time! Unable to empty bladder completely, so now I self cath 4 times daily!

How do you manage with the self caths? Is it hard to do and have a “normal “ lifestyle?

Not at all! I use a vapro plus pocket catheter made by Hollister. They are packaged to carry in a pocket, and are self lubricated! Kind of expensive, but insurance pays for most of it! My life style hasn’t changed hardly at all!
