Mr Scott, how are you feeling today?
Have you been sleeping well?
Do you go to the toilet often during the day also?
And how long had this problem been going on?
And what is it like, when you do go to the toilet? Do you pass urine easily?
And what is the flow of you urine like once you do get started?
Do you ever get caught short when needing to use the toilet?
Well, to tell you the truth, Iím really tired and worn out.
No, not at all well over the last few months. My bladder has me up at least 3 or 4 times a night to go to the loo. And Sheila is up often too, so we donít get more than a couple of hours sleep in a night.
Yes, I guess I do now you mention it. Perhaps once every hour or so. Seems to me I spend half my day in there!
Well, I suppose about 9 months or so, but itís been getting worse recently.
Well, itís a little embarrassing to talk about, umm I ah, have trouble starting to urinate, even though I often dribble a bit into my underpants on the way there.
Pretty weak, it just kind of trickles out. But my bladder still feels full, so I just keep standing there hoping something more will happen. Then an hour later Iím right back there again.
Yes, Iím embarrassed to say that that has happened once. It was at choir practice. I needed to go to the loo, but it was busy. I was waiting but I couldnít hold on and I went ahead and wet my pants.
