I have sensitive skin and some products can bring me out in a rash. Are TENA products safe for me to use?

I've just had a hysterectomy and a bladder sling. Is it possible that my incontinence will continue for a while? The doctor told me I had a hernia on the bladder and that he had to repair that as well. Is this a common occurrence? Adrienne

Do you always get bladder weakness after a hysterectomy? Elaine

Due to nerve damage in my back, I have a neurogenic bladder. I have overflow incontinence and have been tested for feeling in the bladder as I only feel it when it's overfull. I’m seeing a Urologist who’s sending me for a cat scan and blood tests, then I will get a cystoscope. The urine test showed blood in the urine. What am I in for? Francesca

There are certain times in a month when I seem to have issues with urine leaking out. This is not a permanent thing but usually once a month I get this. I can't even get up without urine leaking out. Is there a reason for this? Oksana

What can be prescribed to help an overactive bladder? So far I’ve had Oxybutin and Elmiron with no success. I also took estrogen for many years. Nothing seems to work for me. Your help would be greatly appreciated because I’m sick of having sleepless nights. Alicia
