This board and great people have been a tremendous help to my husband and I. He had an RC with neobladder in August, 2009. A few issues here and there that seemed to disappear on their own. I do have a quick question and that is, does anyone have a hard time emptying their neobladder by having to press hard and throughout the lower abdomen to empty it completely? My husband had an easier time in the first few months but recently, he needs to apply much more pressure. The clinic goofed on the void test a few months ago--the nurse thought they were just collecting a urine sample so he rescheduled for February (he was, understandably, a little tired of doctors and medical visits at that point). The doctor wants to see if perhaps there is any blockage requiring an unusual amount of pressure to void completely now. Meanwhile, we would like to ask if any neo patients out there has/had a similar problem.
Thanks so much,
