“I wore a pad for about a year [for urinary leaking]. After telling my doctor that I wore a pad all day long, he said that 80% of woman your age wear them. So, I thought I just had to get used to it. There were times when I had no control and would wet my pants. It was always in the back of my mind.

Then I met Dr. Matthew Palmer, who said it could be fixed with [medication] or a procedure. He recommended a urodynamics test, which showed I had very long contraction time [bladder wasn't working correctly]. He suggested medicine [to help with this] and I got immediate results. Now, I am not going so often and am able to stop the "drips".”
