In a word i wouldn't bother asking for help if you have a problem with incontinence, far more help is available from incontinence nurses or your own GP. I feel there is no help for people with this condition at Leighton hospital, in my experience they just don’t seem to be interested. This is obviously my own personal experience. Reading the previous post where the patient describes information not being reported accurately was my experience too. As for the reply saying that treatment will follow the assessment of urodynamics, many people do not have positive urodynamics - so this hospital will not help them! What this hospital is failing to understand that some people get help from medications even when the tests prove negative. Surely this should put a big question mark over the reliability of these invasive tests! NICE guidelines written this year admits that there is no reliable evidence to support the accuracy of urodynamics. Even though I suffer from lots of “overactive bladder” symptoms not much help was offered to me. I have now had to return to my GP asking for her help and feel thoroughly let down by this hospital.
