Slipped dis

Patient: I have recently been diagnosed through an MRI scan with 2 slipped discs 1 my neck and 1 at the top of my back between my shoulder blades. I am at present awaiting an appointment with a surgeon. However over the last week I seem to be struggling with controlling my bladder. I seem to go from not wanting to go to beind desperate but then not being able to hold it. My friend has said I should go back to my GP asap as this could be linked and needs dealing with. I really dont want to look a fool if it is nothing to do with it ans it is just an age thing.
