I have been suffering from urinary retention for

Resolved Question:

Hello,
I have been suffering from urinary retention for years. I don't have urinary infection and my renal function is fine. My MRI showed the presence of two small tarlov cysts on S2 and my gynecologist referred me to a neurologist. Could you please recomend me a good neurologist in the UK who is familiar with tarlov cysts?

Because I work in Afghanistan, and have a good medical insurance, I am willing to go private, just want the best neurologist that is familiar and has followed tarlov cyst cases. I will be in the UK on the 15 September. I live in North Wales but will also consider traveling to Londos, just want the best neurologist for my condition.

Hi there,
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you.
A Tarlov cyst is, in fact a neurologic issue. But it has nothing to do with your urinary tract. May I know why you gave us all the information about it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My problem is chronic urinary retention. My gynaecologist referred me to a neurologist because two tarlov cysts were detected on mri and no other cause was identified for my urinary retention.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
tarlov cysts can lead to urinary retention, according to litterature and to the doctors I saw.
Expert:  Dr. Gehring replied 2 years ago.
Yes, they do. I only wanted to be sure that we didn't mix anything up.

I am not going to consult with an orthopaedic surgeon. I need a good urologist that can do a urodynamic test and a good neurologist consultant to look at my MRI and who is familiar with Tarlov Cysts.If you know any, please advise. Many thanks.
