I am having difficulties with my bladder, and the Specialist wants to treat me for leaks, blockages, and urinary tract infections, etc. He wants me to undergo a CMG, ( Cystometry measures bladder capacity,) and an EMG, (Electromyography that tests the electrical activity of muscles and nerves in the pelvic area.)

The CMG uses a thin tube that enters the bladder, and the EMG uses another thin tube that is placed through the rectum, at the same time. The test is done by a qualified technician in the office. I have been told that it is too invasive and (IT HURTS,) no sedative is given to the patient. In addition, I must arrive with a FULL BLADDER.

I am just wondering if any female has had it done before, and what has been her experiences. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Thank you,
