How To Deal With Urinary Incontinence In The Elderly?
Hello doctor, my name is Ade … I see, around December 2016 my mother was hit by a motorcycle which resulted in a broken left leg, and during the healing period it turned out that her leg bones failed to fuse so that the bones protruded out, but it was not only my mother’s bones that There is a problem doctor, after the accident, my mother often complained of urinating continuously, whether she realized it or not. My mother’s BAK could no longer be controlled, last month I took it to a neurologist, I told her the chronology, the neurologist told me to refer to a bone doctor. after going to the bone doctor he said that BAK has nothing to do with nerves .. so I was confused by the doctor .. which specialist should my mother be checked? please directions and directions, and thank you
Hi Ade .. Thank you for the question given.
Urine that passes out of control in medical language is called urinary incontinence. There are several types of incontinence, namely:
Urge incontinence Stress incontinence, for example when laughing, sneezing, or coughing due to pressure on the bladder Incontinence overflow - the patient will feel that there is urine left behind, because the urine remains in the bladder. Total incontinence - the bladder cannot hold urine can occur due to spinal cord injury. Functional incontinence Urinary incontinence occurs in people who are elderly, have lower urinary tract infections, diabetes, or other neurological diseases. If your mother's complaints continue, and they feel very disturbing, then you can have your mother examined by a urologist to get a direct examination, and you can continue to examine urine tests, ultrasound, cystogram, or cystoscopy.
