urethral bulking agents for stress incontinence

Hi everyone I'm having this done on dec 2nd for stress incontinence and was wondering if anyone else has had this procedure they have new bulking agents on the market and they are much better then they used to be they don't migrate and are more successful...I'm sick of the leaking when I cough or sneeze ..and also I ski and workout and would like to get this to stop..

would appreciate any comments from others who have had it done

Re: urethral bulking agents for stress incontinence

seeing no one responded to this post ..I'm assuming not to many women have tried the urethral bulking agents for stress incontinence..I just had it done today and so far its working well ..keep you posted on how i'm doing when i'm farther out. what the doctor use for the bulking agent was Coaptite. you don't need to be allergy tested for it and it stays in place longer..

Re: urethral bulking agents for stress incontinence

so its been 2 weeks since I had the urethral bulking agent coaptite injected and its been wonderful and is still working for stress incontinence. with so many women who suffer with this you would think that there would be more interest and more posts from women who have had it done ..but its not easy finding posts anywhere on this subject.
I'm thinking that most people don't want to talk about it

Re: urethral bulking agents for stress incontinence

just in case anyone is still interested in the coaptite injections its still working..it is so wonderful not to have to wear panty liners all the time and to be dry.

Hi! I just read all your posts on this. I'm wondering what it is exactly. I am so incontinent that it's driving me crazy! Constant diaper or pad wearing. Then I get tired of it, go back to underwear and a small pad. Where exactly did your dr. inject you and how much did it hurt, if any? Thanks so much for posting about this.

Re: urethral bulking agents for stress incontinence

Hi I had this done in the doctors office in a hospital and it was done by a urogynocologist ..I did a lot of research on this and made sure I had a doctor who does this all the time. they inject the coaptite into the urethra on each side so it makes it like an hourglass and stops the leaking. they put lidocaine or some numbing agent first and i did not find it painful and its quick. you have to have some tests done first to see if you are a candidate and I was so insurance paid for it. I still have not had any leaking and was having to wear panty liners four or five times a day. and i'm 69 ..again I'm so glad I had it done. look up coaptite on the internet to research it

Re: urethral bulking agents for stress incontinence

Thank you so much jw. I'll research it. I've had an inflamed urethra for almost 2 yrs now. Urologist doesn't know why & couldn't help me at the time he saw it. I thought my bladder had dropped & asked him to look. I'm 62 & am tired of wearing diapers, etc. I live in Canada so hope that this procedure is done here. I'm so glad this has worked for you.
