Has anyone worked with a transfemoral amputee that developed bladder pain
and urinary urgency while wearing their prosthesis? She also says that she
has been experiencing blood in her urine. I am inclined to think that this
is related to some UTI, but the patient (female) seems to notice this only
while wearing her prosthesis. She has been referred to a urologist and
tests are being done, but I want to make sure I am not missing anything.
Thanks for your help.
