Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No. not after bladder stone was removed . I thick it's nerve damage or muscle damage

Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 3 years ago.
If the nerves or muscle is damage, then only hope at trying to get the bladder to contract again is to see your urologist to discuss wheter you are a canddiate for a bladder pacemaker called a sacral neuromodulator to get the bladder to contrast again. This works about 40-50% of the time. Your doctor needs to review your urodynamics study to se if you are a candidate. Hope this helps.
