Customer Question
I am a 70...

I am a 70 year old women with urinary incontinence, at first it started as a slight leakage but it is getting realy bad to the point that I wear overnight pads or incontinence underwear and have to change numerous time during the day and still have accidents. I have been for bladder ecos and urinary specialist and have taken all kinds of medication with no results. Is there anything tha t can help me with this problem or do I just have to live with it. Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
