Do I have a leaky bladder???  Let me put it this way:

    I own stock in DEPENDS!!


Having kidney disease, I am very limited to liquid intake.  However, I can take a glass of juice, water, soda, etc. and within minutes I have to head to the bathroom.  I sit for awhile until all is good.  It sure doesn't help that I have to take a directic because of my kidneys.  My kidney doctor prescribed a pill to help me control leaks but it stopped me from urinating completely, LOL, so that didn't help.   So I guess we have to do whatever heps us.

My very good friend just had a procedure for this; TVT. It's endoscopic, and basically your bladder is taped (instead of mesh) to keep it in place and stop leakage.
