Just so you know, this is a blog about incontinence - If that bothers you, you may want to stop here.
I had a 5k run today. Finished in just over 40 minutes, which is the best I've done, but not the best I could've done. You may have figured what held me back but the opening sentence. It was particularly bad today and while I was prepared it is still an awkward and embarrassing feeling.
It really caused me to think and while it is not the soul reason I'm here today, it is certainly a contributor. I can remember many times I refused to play with my sons because I wasn't 'dressed' for it. I know it has affected my ability to freely run and play.
I am not letting it get in my way any longer, or so I thought. But today I realized it still was. I have 2 targeted exercise dvds (entire pelvic floor - beyond kegels) It's time to do something about it - consistently.
**I just had a exam and pap- I failed to discuss this issue. I was told I had a tilted cervix. So much that she was surprised I delivered vaginally. A little late on the intell, my kids are 20 & 14! But anyway it explains the back labor and monthly back pain. **
My return visit is in 3-4 months. - So my plan is to work the videos and see if there is any improvement. I'm not expected to be 'fixed'. But hopefully I will see an improvement. If not I will discuss surgery options with my doc. Has anyone had surgery for incontinence? Was it successful?
Best to all
