No more depending on the "Depends" lol!

***Blog warning! This is not an easy subject for me, but if it helps anyone else then great! Awesome!

I had 4 kids when I was younger (58 yrs young now lol) and of course my bladder and pelvic floor were never the same. I would start leaking pee every time I tried running, jumping, lifting heavy objects, etc. At first it was just a mini-pad issue, then it became a full sized pad issue. It was super embarrassing! I would double check where all the bathrooms were before going walking or biking, make sure I had pads in my purse for "accidents", etc.
NOT ANYMORE! I had a bladder sling placed in me, and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
I no longer leak, I can walk miles without a problem, bike, etc. So, ok I can't do full on squats or lunges, or planks but I can do modified ones like wall squats. I am soooo happy I did it! There was NO pain involved, just had to be careful for a while when lifting or bending down, until it healed all the way. Don't suffer anymore with leaking! Its just not worth it and it's a relatively easy fix. I was down from walking or exercising for about 1 month but now I can live leak free for years and years! Seems worth it to me! ;)
