I was incontinent for 20 years before it occurred to me that maybe it could be FIXED!
I went to a urologist who did a procedure ( Pessary) and I was
Dry for …… 6 days!😟
They re-did it and same exact thing happened. So I decided to travel 4 hours to the Cleveland Clinic in south Florida where imaging showed I had all my organs “falling” out. Pelvic Organ Prolapse.
After a painful ( but worth it!) surgery I was healed.
Fast forward 7 years, and I’m leaking again! I could cry!
Even though I’m 66 I went and bought tampons. I heard that the pressure it causes “in there” can stop the leaking. IT DID!
Since I’m not going to use tampons for the rest of my life, I’m going to see my Urogynecologist at Cleveland Clinic in Feb and see if a “Pessary” IS all I need this time. I hope so! It’s quick and painless. Thank God for these fixes!
It was ruining my quality of life. I wish I had known about it sooner.
