Update on Jackie's abdominal x-ray

Today I received confirmation of what the doctor suspected yesterday. Jackie's abdominal x-ray showed an area in her bowel that is backing up and rubbing against her bladder. This is possibly what is resulting in Jackie's urinary leakage. Hopefully, this really is the answer I've been looking for as to why Jackie continues to have bladder leakage. So, the doctor has ordered a 3-day treatment to clean out her system and then a maintenance treatment following. Jackie will see the doctor in 3 weeks for a follow-up.
If this has been the problem all along, I am going to feel some guilt for getting frustrated with Jackie over her urine problems. She has been toilet trained since age 2- 2 1/2 but she goes through periods when she has wetting issues. I really am hoping that this latest idea is the answer.
