      Urinary hesitation is my issue now. First it was urgency...🤷🏾‍♀️It's either urgently need to go or my stomach hurts so bad but it won't come out, and when it does my bladder won't completely empty. Taking Flomax now.

      Don't laugh but I will bet my life on 5 small prunes every morning! I'm 70. Plugged up "regularly," most of my adult life. Just cursed with a sluggish gut. And then about 6 months ago, almost ready to go to the ER, I hurt so much, I bought some prunes. They weren't going to kill me, I thought. And they might work so I really didn't have anything to lose. BIG surprise but they worked. And still do. I've drunk the equivalent of the world's oceans in water, eaten most of the world's Oatmeal products and crunched enough broccoli to fill the Grand Canyon and still couldn't make it work. A handful of dried plums every day and I'm a happy girl. Geese, I wish I'd paid attention to old wives tales about 40 years ago. Prunes. Prunes. Who knew?

      I was still working when I was wearing pads, and having accidents. I went to have the urodynamics testing and I was retaining a lot of urine. I began catheterizing and I stopped getting UTI’S!!! I been catching for 23 years now. It changed my life for the better!

      I live in a small town. Don't have very many choices. Where do you live?

      I wear TENA pads every day & night (that’s for bladder). I have bad constipation too.

      Go before you feel it. Set a time like every 30 minutes. More or less depending on your habits. I make sure I drink lots then stop 2 hours before travel or put on a pad

      Are you having incontinence? I have had a few accidents so I no longer drink water or anything else unless I’m very close to a bathroom. I go to pee the instant I feel the slightest need to go. I hate it but I’m thankfully not at a place where I need to wear Depends yet.
