Bladder with a Spinal Cord Injury

Despite all the common secondary complications, mobility challenges, psychological effects, psycho-social and societal issues a person must live with when managing a spinal cord injury, the most basic human body functions remain the main focus of each and every day. Read on to learn more about the functioning of both bowel and bladder with a spinal cord injury.

The first thing I think about and do when I wake up in the morning is urinate – or at least try to. The second is to engage in a comprehensive process known as the bowel program. It is only after these two priorities are thoroughly completed that I can go about my day.

Within this category of our community, you will find a variety of content focused specifically on this topic – Everything from how I manage my neurogenic bowels and bladder, to helpful assistive tools, nutrition tips and what to do when accidents happen. I hope you find just what you’re looking for, and if not, ask me! You can send me a message through our Ask Aaron page.
