Bladder/Back/Bladder/Back

Morning all. Just out of curiosity how long does a MR take???? Also if I’ve been diagnosed with along term bladder condition that basically has me peeing like a cocker Spaniel every 5 mins, can’t hold bladder according too incontanince nurse 1-5 grade on the pelvic floor and mines a 1 (oh joy) and severe back issues Sciatica/Bulging disc and athritis.

So my question is relating too the mobility part. They’ve stated I can walk from 50 up to 200, but keep having breaks but in that time I’ve had too stop cause my bladder light is always on green and my back is always hurting. Is there a good case for mobility there or am I just just just. Hmmmm if the care part cause issues with the mobility part what are you supposed too do

Thanks again everyone I do appreciate answers but I’m not always good at acknowledging (another issue) so will thank peeps now ❤️❤️👌

Hi

Its a difficult one

As peeing is something we all have to do and there will be many that need to go when starting walking .

However if you made it clear that you are in constant pain while walking . the reason you have to stop is due to this and you are unable to walk that far continually and its 7 days a week .You may get somewhere.

I Hope you got some care element

Hi thanks for the reply. I get an overwhelming urge too pee even when I’ve just literally been mins before so it’s a feeling that restricts walking too some extent(stops you in your tracks) bladder goes into spasm. Back the back I can’t do a lot about that other than up pain killers and have regular breaks when walking

Many thanks for replying

Hi sorry to hear about your issues.with all your issues you do have a clear case for pip mobility .they should have took the timescale into consideration as well.from wot you say you clearly cannot do the 50 to 200 metres .the MR decision again terrible there is no timescale but usually between 2 to 8 weeks .mobility is enchanched up to 20 metres and up to 50 metres for standard.do try your hardest to get help from cab or wellfair rights for your appeal I do Take it you have put in for your MR .If you cannot get help for any reason for appeal join benefits and work for your appeal .P.s severe back issues sciatica disc arthritis and bladder you would be toiling to get in the apoeal room with your oain etc and they would also see this at appeal.and you should get care also .

Thanks I’ve been awarded low care which is a start. Just waiting on a few bits etc as back up paperwork too arrive as support. As I’ve only just had bladder issue confirmed at the same time award came through I’m hoping this and other bits will sway the outcome. Can only try many thanks

Make certain thay have taken bladder issues into account if only just confirmed if you never had this when you went for assessment it may have not been considered due to requirements you need to have the problem for at least 3 months .

Personal question you don't need to answer but if you use continence pads make certain thay are aware of this .Or any measure you have to take re this problem.

Does it cause you anxiety when you have to go out do you have accidents and feel embarrassed .

Hi yes I have too wear big girl pull ups lol. It’s a good job I’m a positive person and yes anxiety is an issues incas I leak from them or can’t get too the loo in time. My backs it impossible too get there in a rush. They were aware of it but it’s been an issue since childhood that’s got worse with back, fibromyalgia etc all cause pain/discomfort . I was on Sertraline but stopped it as I’m on 40-50 ml of Amitriptyline which is used not only for anxiety but pain so they wrote it down as no medication for anxiety which I did explain about

Thanks

Good Luck

Hi juneeyre, depending what's causing the bladder issue if really bad an op could correct it pretty easily if it's just a prolapse kinda problem.that in itself will give backaches from the pulling effect etc so could be worth while persueing that line? Even with an underlying back issue the bladder would be adding to the discomfort.

Thanks
