This was really a good program - many thanks to Stu and the wonderful personable doctors.
I don't know if it is appropriate to ask a question here but I have one. I have secondary progressive MS with huge urinary urgency and frequent UTIs resulting in incontnence. My world was getting smaller. Oxybutynin did not help at all. I went to a urologist 7 months ago and got Botox. This was positively life changing! After measuring how much I was voiding 8 days later, the doctor said I did not have to catheterise. I have had even more frequent UTIs since the Botox. Would it make a difference if I quit taking the Oxybutynin? What if the Oxybutynin was changed to the drug discussed in this program - Mirabegron? Would just taking a low dose antibiotic everyday help? I see the doctor again this month and he will probably tell me to catheterise which I know how to do.... but you mentioned there are issues with that as well so would the possibilities above make any sense?

I will ask the Urologist to answer this
