These studies are used to assess how the bladder and urethra are performing their job of storing and releasing urine. Urodynamic tests help your doctor see how well your bladder and sphincter muscles work.
After urodynamic tests, there might be mild discomfort with urination for a few hours. You may also experience a small amount of blood in the urine due to the catheter. Drinking (16) ounces of water every hour for 2 hours may help with symptoms. Taking a warm bath or holding a warm, damp washcloth over the urethral opening may be recommended by your healthcare provider. If any symptoms of infection are noticed such as fever, chills, or pain, call your healthcare provider.
Tests results are available after the tests are completed and will be discussed with you when you see your provider.
Please call with any questions.
