Peeing when I stand up
Sometimes when I’ve stood up from settee and start to walk ... I literaly pee myself. It started this afternoon ... I’ve had 3 cups tea today which is about normal. Usually it happens when I stand up to go upstairs to bed. So I can cope with that. But today I’ve soaked myself twice so,far and it’s only 5 pm. I Have been taking oxybutynine for overactive bladder for years 10mg per day. I also, have had bowel cancer op. In 2018 (Dec.). How can I go docs. When I could per myself before I get there? But they aren’t too keen on seeing patients anyway .

Dear Kay
There are definitely very good options available to you.
Oxybutynin is only plan A.
Please attend with your Urologist who can assess, and advise on newer treatment options.
Kind regards
