Continue to interview Mr Scott by clicking on the questions below.
And have the problems you have been experiencing been affecting your mood at all?
Do you drink much tea or coffee?
Do you drink alcohol or soft drinks?
How many glasses of water would you drink each day?
Do you use your bowel regularly?
Have you noticed any changes in your stools, such as unusually hard or soft stools?
What would you hope would change if we are to successfully treat your problems with your bladder?
Yes, Iíve been pretty down. I just feel so useless, wetting my pants all the time. Iím so embarrassed that I canít talk to Veronica about it and I guess that might be affecting our relationship. Also, I donít want to burden her with any more work, so I try to clean up after myself and rinse out my clothes and underclothes, hoping she wonít notice. I donít want to go anywhere or play any sports because Iím afraid what happened at choir practice will happen again. I suppose not sleeping well is not helping either.
I suppose Iíd have about 3 or 4 cups a day. I always have coffee in the morning and then I usually drink tea for the rest of the day.
Caffeine is a diuretic that can cause polyuria.
Only one or two beers or wines on the weekend and a couple of diet cokes a day.
Probably only two, when I take my tablets.
Yes, regular as clockwork. Right after my morning coffee. I take the newspaper in with me!
No, nothing that Iíve noticed.
Iíd just love a good nightís sleep and to be able to sing and play sport and generally just be socially active without the fear that I might wet myself.
