    Default A wee problem!

    Hi

    I have an appt with a urologist next week and am scared. I have a bladder prolapse and leak urine daily. Sorry tmi!
    Just wanted to hear from anyone who has similar issues and what happened at their first appt.

    Hugs, I have bladder and uterine prolapse. I only leak urine if my bladder is really full and I laugh/sneeze/cough etc.

    It's a really isolating thing to have I know because it's embarrassing and no-one wants to talk about it.

    Massive hugs and good luck with your appointment I hope you can get some solutions to your problem xx

    Hi

    Thanks for sharing your story. Looking at your signature I believe a congratulations is in order

    The tena ads used to have me in tears as they always show older women and for someone at the time who was having issues in their 20's prior to childbirth it's just so isolating. We can talk about pretty much everything on bub hub but it seems that this is the exception. Even behind the screen women feel embarrassed. I have difficulty acknowledging it to myself sometimes so I suppose I do understand the reluctance, it just seems to give bladder issues "more power" !
    I'm rambling a bit....

    I finally caved in and now use poise liners which are better designed for bladder leakage. They say that there for menstrual and light bladder usage so it's less confronting than having to use tena. You also feel drier and it feels a bit more hygienic.

    Also thanks for posting, I don't feel so alone.

    Default A wee problem!

    I got a bladder prolapse after the birth of my daughter. I went to the physio every week for about six months to assist with pelvic floors. The prolapse is better and less uncomfortable, but I still know its there. I know there is surgery available, however it is recommended its only done after you have completed your family. For me, surgery is a must as soon as I've had my last child.
    Have you seen a physio? The lady I saw was really good and considering its such an embarrassing topic, I didn't feel too awkward seeing her. Apparently having a prolapse is so much more common than what you think, it's just that no one dares speak about it.
