Peer Connect: Bladder Health

February 18 - February 25

Managing a neurogenic bladder after a spinal cord injury can often times be confusing and frustrating. That’s why BACKBONES is hosting two events about bladder health – one for men and one for women – with a medical professional in attendance.

We will discuss background on neurogenic bladders, different types of catheters, UTIs, medication, bladder botox, etc. There will also be time for participants to ask questions and share what works for them. We just want to create a space for people to discuss this often frustrating component of living with a SCI!
