      I’m getting my Axonics stimulator placed on January 25th for severe urinary retention. This thread helped me out too! I’m crazy nervous, but I’ll come back after the procedure to check in 😊

        @xoxcaitxox Did it improve your symptoms? To what degree? I get really bad urinary retention and that's why we're considering it

          @Stretchy_Qxeer i have nuerogenic bldder that caused incontinence and urinary retention. to the degree? i could cath and it would fill up 3/4 of a soda can after relieving my bladder. i dont cath anymore but i have had two utis which is pretty decent compared to how many i had when it was at its worst
