Can I get Social Security disability for a fallen bladder? If you are asking this question, it is probably because you have a fallen bladder and are incapacitated and unable to work.
Your bladder is a hollow organ that is situated in your pelvis. Releasing and storing urine is the primary job your bladder has to do.
When your bladder fills with urine, it creates pressure. It is this pressure that brings about the urge to urinate.
When the fibrous wall between your bladder and your vagina gets weak, it causes a fallen bladder. This leads to your bladder drooping down into your vagina.
The opening into your urethra is stretched by a fallen bladder. As a result, when you laugh, sneeze, move in any way or cough, pressure is placed on your bladder that brings about unwanted leakage of urine. In addition, a fallen bladder causes you not to be able to fully empty your bladder.
All fallen bladders are not the same. Some represent a more serious medical condition than others. This is measured by grades.
A Grade 1 fallen bladder is a mild condition. Your bladder is only slightly into your vagina.
A Grade 2 fallen bladder is more severe. Your bladder reaches the opening of your vagina.
A Grade 3 fallen bladder is the most serious. This means that your bladder bulges out through the opening of your vagina.
The primary cause of a fallen bladder is pregnancy and vaginal childbirth. The straining of your pelvic floor muscles can also lead to a fallen bladder. This can be brought about by:
Obesity or being overweight
Straining when having a bowel movement
Bronchitis or a chronic cough
Repeated heavy lifting.
There may be no signs or symptoms with a Grade 1 fallen bladder. If your fallen bladder is Grade 2 or Grade 3, you may experience:
Urinary leakage or pain in sexual intercourse
Loss of urinary control when you sneeze, cough or laugh
Frequent bladder infections
A feeling of pressure or fullness in your vagina and pelvis, especially when standing for a long time
A bulge of tissue protruding through your vaginal opening
Becoming more discomfortable when you lift, cough, bow down or strain
Incontinence (not being able to control urination), in serious conditions.
Again, what you are wanting to know is, “Can I get Social Security disability for a fallen bladder?” The answer is that in most cases, a fallen bladder would not qualify you to get Social Security disability benefits.
One of the reasons for this is because in order to qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you have to be unable to work for at least 12 months. A fallen bladder would not normally cause this.
However, you may have other disabling conditions in addition to a fallen bladder. As a result, you are disabled and unable to work.
Have you applied for Social Security disability benefits and been denied? The best thing to do is to contact the disability attorney at disabilitycasereview.com, and have your case evaluated at no cost or obligation to you.
