I attended the continence service in Eddercliffe. Julia, the nurse that I saw, was very helpful. I’ve suffered with a weak bladder for years. Julia explained clearly to me what my treatment would be, and helped with choosing the correct tablets.
Before I started treatment, I couldn’t go 20 minutes without going to the toilet. I couldn’t even walk my dog without having to pop back to go to the loo and work out where toilets were on the way.
Now I can go a long time without needing the toilet, and it’s changed my life! I did initially have a few side effects, but they have now subsided and Julia helped me through this.
I can walk the dog for 2-3 hours at a time, and I even went to a concert the other day and didn’t need the toilet.
It’s surprising how something which seems like a small thing can completely change your life. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done. Although it can seem embarrassing at first, I highly recommend to anyone suffering with incontinence problems to see someone about it. It’s worth it.
A couple of weeks after treatment, Julia even called me to see how I was getting on. I’d like to thank her for her support, she has been brilliant.
