Im a 45 year old female and have been struggling with stress incontinence for several years. My Dr has tried urethral bulking but it has been unsuccessful. after an appointment with him today, he has suggested surgery. i wanted to get others thoughts on post surgery results and would you consider it worth it. any advice would be appreciated, thank you
Hi, im sorry to hear that the uretral bulking didint work. How do you handle your incontinence today, can you do things you want to do? What can be the side effect of an operation?
I had an operation for stress incontinence which was successful for stress incontinence but left me with urge incontinence which is worse. With stress incontinence I had leaks when I coughed or exercised now I just get an urge to urinate and within seconds I wet myself. I don’t have time to get to the toilet so now have to wear incontinence pants. It doesn’t happen to everyone, but it’s a risk you take.
