After Surgery for Stress Incontinence I have worse problems
I had surgery for stress incontinence a few months ago - they used tape to lift up my falling bladder but after the surgery i was worse off, pouring uring whenever i got out of bed needing to visit the toilet.
My surgeon said this was very normal. If this is so they should warn you because I started getting very depressed thinking that the surgery was unsuccessful. Now, two and a half months on. I'm on daily meds that have made a huge difference. Plus, I'm having pelvic floor training which is computer driven to re-train my bladder to hold the urine longer. My problem was that I was used to leaking little bits at a time. After surgery, I was leaking whole bladders. Prior to surgery,I couldn't run, sneeze, cough, laugh without leaking. Now, I leak if i run out of medication, have missef my daily exercises for several days or drink too much coffee. I'm not very good at remembering to take my medication. I just wish someone would have mentioned all this before. For those that have the urge incontinence...be patient. It does get better!
