I am so sorry, what a lame thing. I had urodynamic testing in'95 and thought it a waste as well--my conclusion was less generous, I felt it was a way for the uro to fund is boat, not a way to decide how best to help me.
Ugh.

some recent reading that i was doing regarding smooth muscle function and the GI tract made me decide to search on hypokalemia and urinary retention. it has sent me along a rather interesting tangent:

Severe metabolic acidosis and hypokalemia in a patient with enterovesical fistula
We report a case of a 59-year-old woman who had severe metabolic acidosis and hypokalemia due to an enterovesical fistula... systemic weakness and numbness of the fingers... the patient was examined for the underlying cause of these electrolyte and acid-base disorders... she had suffered postoperative neurogenic bladder dysfunction, necessitating intermittent self-catheterization... A radiographic study after recovery from the acid-base and electrolyte disorders revealed the presence of an enterovesical fistula. The fistula was surgically resected and the metabolic acidosis completely cleared. Unexplained hyperchloremic metabolic acidosis with hypokalemia may suggest the presence of an enterovesical fistula...
