Severe OAB symptoms and complete loss of bladder control

2 months ago

My case is rather extreme as I go through approximately 4-10 diapers per day sometimes even more than that. It really just depends on the day. I do drink a lot of water because I’m on a medication that causes extreme thirst. Approx 3-4 liters per day. I usually lose complete control of my bladder just about every time the urge hits. And it often hits out of nowhere. I also suffer from my bladder not fully evacuating. Meds don’t work. The Botox injections only help for a short time and very little at that. I’m only 38 years old and have struggled with OAB for approximately 10 years. I get so embarrassed because a lot of times diapers won’t hold enough when I lose full control and it leaks considerably and through my clothes.
