Are MS patients good candidates for interstim bladder pacemakers? My new gynecologist wonders why my urologist never recommended this to me.
In general the bladder stimulators have been helpful to many MS patients, but a large number have reported a ‘wearing off’ of the benefit over two years. Thus, several urologists have cut back on using them.
