When I drink any water, coffee, juice, anything except milk, I get urinary incontinence. I do not want drink anything when I am out from home.

I have had interstitial cystitis (IC) for about 8 to 10 years. No real urinary problems until the doctor inserted a small dose of Botox into my bladder back in February 2015 to help with the IC. I've had no improvement with the IC like some folks that had the Botox injection. So now it's a year and a half since the Botox and I didn't have any incontinence problems until the Botox. My urologist doesn't understand why the Botox caused this problem. He said the Botox dose he gave me was just a small amount and would usually wear off in about 4 months. The Incontinence has been a real negative life change.

I have urinary incontinence and functional bowel incontinence. These are a result of spinal cord damage in a car accident.
