When is the appropriate time to seek medical attention for incontinence?
The right time to seek medical help is if the incontinence is affecting your quality of life and altering your ability to live your life on your terms.
Is incontinence a normal part of aging?
As we age, the bladder muscle will lose some of its ability to store urine, thereby creating some bladder symptoms. However, overall the loss of urine involuntarily in a healthy individual, excluding many other related medical issues, is not a normal part of aging.
Will I have to have surgery to correct the problem?
A proper evaluation of your incontinence is essential to determine what type you have and how best to treat it. There are a variety of treatment options available to you. The goal is to try and correct the problem starting with the least invasive options first and only exploring surgical intervention if it is essential to correcting the issue in order to restore function.
