High urinary pressure issue--

Postby Mayzoo » Thu Oct 04, 2007 3:57 pm

My sweetie is 5.5 yrs old (dd). She has ACM, Arachnoid Cyst (brain), Sryinx (t6-t12 1-2mm), and is High functioning autistic.

Hopefully not TMI but when she sits on the potty she can pee straight out at least three feet (hits the door so I don't know how much pressure she really has). I really don't want her to undergo a urodynamic study......she has already been through so much, she would be undergoing pain and fear and I get the drift all I will hear is geee she has high pressure due to ACM and SM :shock: . DUH.....

Can anyone else relate? We try to encourage sitting a little leaning forward and that "fixes" the immediate problem, but just wondering if anyone else has experience with this?
