This is Dr. David
he needs an ultrasound of his bladder.
if his bladder is very enlarged, he could be having a neurogenic bladder with loss of innervation to his bladder.
he could have tumor spread to his spinal cord which can cause spinal cord compression and loss of urinary control as well.
he might need a spine MRI scan to look for cancer in the spine.
what type of tumor does he have in his neck?
Hello Dr David
Sorry for the delay. His tumour in the neck is called a submandibular tumour and he also had a neck dissection to remove the lymph nodes etc. However, I cant help thinking his problems with urinary incontinece only came about after the catheter was inserted and nothing to do with his neck. What do you think?
he could have had urethral trauma or trauma to his bladder from the catheter
he should let his GP doctor know.
he might have to see a urologist and get more bladder testing.
like a bladder ultrasound
and a cystoscopy to look inside of the bladder and urethra.
urologist so this sort of work.
Thank you. I think this is more then just an infection do you agree?
yes, more than an infection.
he is on antibiotics already and things are not getting better.
