Re: stress incontinence and overactive bladder need help!!

redladybird,

One possibility is to try "exercise therapy" for your "stress incontinence". The sling operation is more invasive and therefore should only be done as a last resort. If I were you I would do some research and find out more about the exercise therapy. I think it's worth a try.

Thanks for yr advise.
I have been to see a physio who has given me some excercises to do also using kegel 8 an electric pod to help but nothing seems to really work!
