Incontinence :/

Postby zoomie » Fri May 30, 2014 11:23 am

Ladies, I've been using tena ladies for a while but just recently they are not enough, my bladder spasms so me emptying my bladder properly and then I tend to have one that lets it all go at once, leaving me in a puddle.... can anyone recommend a washable your Matt for the bed as I'm currently using towels and getting sore. Also, for bigger pads can I buy them or would the doctor prescribe them?

Thank you for any help x

Making an appt with your GP might be worth considering zoomie. There can be a number of causes behind incontinence, and there are also a number of ways in which it can be manged/treated very effectively. I appreciate that this is a rather :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: subject to bring up. If you find it difficult, try writing some notes down, and ordering them into what makes sense for you. You can then take them with you to act as a reminder/prompt, or if things are too uncomfortable to bring up, give your sheet of notes to your GP to read, and take things from there.

One of the side effects of Amitriptyline, Gabapentin and Pregabalin is incontinence, the higher the dose the worse the problem can be. I would read the small print on any and all medication you are taking and see what they say.

Thank you, I have a doctor's app next Friday, so well see if I can muster up the will to tell him about it... my hubby always comes with me so I might ask him to prompt me if I don't say anything :oops:
I've been through my medications and its not listed as a side effect, I hope it's not a surgery thing as 6 ops in the last two years and already waiting for number 7 :roll: takes me ages to recover! Xxx Thank you all xxX
