I have been living with a spinal cord injury for over 25 years. It has always had it's challenges and up and downs.
Always put on a brave face, bared it all, and smiled.
I have had many issues with my bladder. I am sure a lot of you can relate. Too many superpubic to count. I have had a sling done and cath now. It was a life savor for awhile. Now I find myself leaking and becoming more incontinent as time goes on. The urologist has had me try meds which none seem to help. It has brought me down. It is embarrassing and has me at a loss at the moment. Most people won't understand and it isn't something you just talk to anyone about. I have been lucky to not ha e to depend on pads, diapers, frequent clothes changes, or bed wets. Now it seems like a never ending nightmare. It is something I am embarrassed about big time. I cannot even bring myself to tell my boyfriend or best friend.
I know how you feel chelletx, I have to wear pads all the time because I leak otherwise. As time goes on, the pelvic floor muscles loosen naturally, so along with the damage caused by the nerves, this just becomes an added issue.
I am not sure of your injury level before I say this but can you do pelvic floor exercises? It may not make enogh difference but it may help a little?
