JACUSTOMER-zgoe72zo- : My sister, aged 89, has suffered with bladder incontinence for 2 or 3 years and is keen to get help if she can. Her GP has been of no help and doesn't discuss it with her although she has told him. Is there any way she can be helped please?
Dr Owen :

hi

Dr Owen :

Well bladder incontinence at the age lf 89 can be quite difficult to deal with because of the Atrophy of the tissue in this area.

Dr Owen :

So what is BEST to be done is NOT surgery - but usually using a Pessary -

Dr Owen :

A pessary is a piece of silicone that is placed into the vagina that can HOLD the vagina / bladder so as to prevent or to at least drastically reduce the leaking of the urine

Dr Owen :

Hui

Dr Owen :

Hi

Dr Owen :

are you there?

Dr Owen :

Usually a GP does not know how to handle this

Dr Owen :

so an Urologist or an ob/gyn would be the best type of doctor for your sister to get the most appropriate care for her

JACUSTOMER-zgoe72zo- : Thanks so much. Will she need to make a hospital appointment?
Dr Owen :

Yes, I would suggest an appointment for this - with either an Urologist or an Ob/Gyn doctor

Dr Owen :

I wish you and your sister well
