I had a combination of hormone suppressant and radiotherapy and, apart from the usual side effects, I am hopeful of a cure. I restarted physical exercise (Parkrun) a few weeks ago to improve my stamina and lose some weight. The running cycle starts at 0900 every Saturday but I have to wear a full disposable nappy as I just have to “go” just before and during the run, despite emptying my bladder a number of times before the start. I have no actual incontinence. It`s as if the physical effort induces the urgency. I have also started wearing a full nappy when on longer journeys where toilets might not be available and for “peace of mind”. I`m scheduled to see a urologist next month but all the medical comment I`ve had so far has been very laid back and almost lacking in interest.
Any supporting comment you could offer would be most welcome. Thanks.
As you never leak whilst experiencing sensations, you are likely having pseudo or phantom nerve impulses. This is probably a stress response to the sequence of events you mention. As you have experience Nocturnal Enuresis, it is likely that you are still worried about leaking again, and this causes the obsessive sensations.
I have a useful article here that may help you.
Physical exercise does put more pressure on the pelvic floor muscles, so it is likely that your body recognizes this and further triggers the sensation of leakage.
I would recommend that you see a Doctor and ask to be referred to a specialist who can help find the root of the problem.
Have you visited the urologist yet?
