    Default Light bladder leakage - has anyone had laser treatment

    Hi there

    I had heard an advert on the radio the other day about a laser treatment for bladder leakage.

    Although I am doing my kegels - has anyone had this treatment- if so, how did it go and did it work?

    I haven't. But I was chatting to someone at work not that long ago and she said it has worked very well. She had previously had sling surgery for the prolapse that only lasted a few years

    Where did your friend have their treatment, and what did they use.

    I am in the Hunter area.

    In Maitland, there is Women's Health Associates, which consists of a gynaecologist and a physiotherapist.

    They try and see patients together. They offer something called the neotonus chair - which basically you sit on and it stimulates your pelvic muscles using magnets.

    They also have the mona lisa laser which stimulates new collagen production and can also help tighten things.

    A friend of mine developed LBL when she went through the menopause -, she was very impressed at the laser at Maitland.

    Subbing. I've had prolapses repaired by surgery earlier this year but unfortunately still have urinary incontience. I've tried electro stimulation 3 times a week for 6 months and also a pessary ring with no luck.
    A sling is my next option but i'd like to avoid it if possible - laser sounds interesting.
    I've recently had an ultrasound that showed one side if my pfloor ligaments are torn through which explains why no amount if exercise is fixing it

    I have come across an increasing number of adverts regarding laser treatment for all sorts of problems (leakage and painful sex), has any one on the forum had any treatments? I notice that a number of gynaecologists are now offering the Mona Lisa Touch - Dr Kew who is in Maitland (and now Charlestown) and Dr lilliana miljkovic in Lambton. I am guessing that this is the preferred treatment.

    I saw this thread come back, so I thought I would share my experiences with you.
    Back in January of last year - there was only one Gynaecologist in the area offering the laser treatment (Dr Kew), there was also a skin specialist in Kotora offering a laser service.

    I decided it made more sense to see a specialist gynaecologist - and for no other reason than that.

    I had done my research and had thought that the problem was initially 'breast feeding' vaginal soreness. However, the oestrogen cream my GP gave me did not seem to help - hence the interest in the Mona Lisa Touch laser.

    When I saw Dr Kew, although he felt I would benefit from laser vaginal regeneration - he also felt I had developed secondary 'vaginismus' as a result of the sex being painful.

    He also sent me to his pelvic floor therapist 6 weeks after the first treatment and picked up on the difficulties I was having in intimacy with my husband and sent us along to a sexologist.

    For me, the fix was not purely the laser - but it was certainly part of it. I did notice much less rawness and my episiotomy site was much less sore.

    I can't comment about the other laser treatment in Kotara - but for me at least - I felt that I had benefit from a combination of approaches and am now in a far better place - and by the way - I am happy on the trampoline!

    Dr Kew's office needs better signage - I drove past it a few times without realising where it was.
