Overactive or damage?

I am a 54 yr old female that had a 6mm stone broken & removed w/stent placement in November 2019 (this was the 2nd stone [4mm] in a yr but only one that had to be physically removed). Stent came out on its own 5 days later w/o pain. To date, I am still suffering from severe incontinence. Dr. put me on meds a few months ago, they are not helping. Of course w/C-Vid19, I cannot get back to Drs office; I have demanded to see specialist at OSU (this urologist & her boss are refusing the referral). I am reading that incontinence is rare in these situations. What can I do? I am at a complete loss & have no idea where to go from here! Thank you.

Your condition is difficult to explain from the surgery you have had.

You certainly require investigation as to the cause.
At a minimum, I would suggest a Urine culture, ultrasound and diagnostic cystoscopy.
Kind regards
