Recently, a patient came to see me for urination difficult, the former doctors’ diagnosis was “neurological bladder”(which means the patient is too nervous to urine).
After a detail inquiring and examination, the urination difficult actually is secondary to the uterus and rectum prolapse. She had three natural labors before, and had weakness of pelvic bottom. She had to use the catheter to drain the urine out of bladder in most of time, esp. before the sleep.
Dr.Fan suggested her to consult other related specialists to see if this need an operation. Patient was very hesitate to do the operation. Anyway, she still booked appointments with ob/gyn surgeon and rectum surgeon.
So, during the gap to see other doctors, we started acupuncture, twice a week. To our surprise, the result of acupuncture is very impressive–after three or four acupuncture, her urination is much much easier, and almost does not need the catheter.
