There is nothing that challenges our dignity and sense of identity as incontinence. What are you being told? Will this pass?
One of my doctors had me doing vaginal and anal exercises for three months before surgery to avoid incontinence. I don't know if they would help you but they are very easy. Anal-- clench as if you are trying to hold back a movement. Hold for as long as you can-the goal is 10 seconds. At first I could only hold for 2 seconds. I try to do 10 at a time. The vaginal is similar but different muscles. Clench as if you are stopping a urine flow. Again try to hold for 10 seconds.
It is more effective you do these exercises separately. Please accept my apology if this grosses you out.
It always cheers me up to do things for other people so today I put together Easter baskets for my youngest son and grandson. My older three boys are much too old to want chocolate Easter bunnies. I am trying to figure out how to send Easter baskets for children to the local Food Bank for homeless families.
A definite yes to book suggestions!
I hope you feel more in control soon. Many hugs, Szm
