    Hi, yeh, first thing is to either self refer or ask GP to refer you to The Continence Service. I did that several years ago. They are very helpful. I had urge incontinence and retention.

    When my legs gave up the ghost and I needed the loo hourly, I decided to go for a catheter. Tried the urethral one for 5 months, but didnt get on with it. I`ve had a supra pubic one for 6 years. it makes life easier for full time wheelchair users.

    I have tried many different medications...vesicare, oxybutynin, and tolterodine. I find betmiga the best. They are all bladder calmers.

    Is it urinary incontinence you suffer with, or bowel?
