"urgency incontinence"

About: Ninewells Hospital / Urology

(as the patient),

have had this problem for many years. various medications have not worked. attended ninewells last year (2014) was prescribed by mr goodman a new drug this drug worked for a short time.

without this medication I do go to toilet more often. but this has not helped my incontinence. I am constantly worried about body smells and avoid situations where i am out for long periods. also the thought of going on holidays is now taboo. I am now considering going private to find out if some form of operation is available.
