Don’t Let Bladder Problems Ruin Your Special Day
Let’s face it. As much as we all love being moms, childbearing can leave some not-so-desirable, long-lasting effects, including bladder issues. One in four women over the age of 18 will suffer from incontinence at some point in their lives. And many of these women will suffer in silence, waiting an estimated seven years before seeking treatment!
If you’ve got a bladder condition called urge incontinence (a sudden urge to urinate), do you look for the nearest bathroom everywhere you go?
Or what about worrying that you’ll leak urine every time you cough, laugh or lift something heavy (medically known as stress incontinence)?
Here’s the good news…while our mothers and grandmothers suffered through it or wore those bulky pads or diapers, the treatments today are much less obvious and invasive.
Newer options like nerve stimulation, minimally-invasive procedures, slings, medications, and even Botox injections are helping women get their groove back and feel ‘whole’ again.
A precise diagnosis can help you and your physician choose the best option. Urology Austin uses a newer, cutting edge technology called video urodynamics. More precise and less painful that traditional techniques, video urodynamics uses x-ray dye, allowing physicians to analyze the bladder in real time in order to pinpoint the exact source of the issue. The innovative diagnostic tool is covered by most insurance companies and can be a life changing technology for women suffering from bladder problems.
