Is surgery be the good option to treat urinary incontinence for over 3 years?
would depend on other illnesses
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
Surgery is offered to persons that have tried medical therapy with no response.
The reasons that you would not be a candidate would not be related to the incontinence but would be the presence of any other illness that may impact your response to surgery eg if you have heart disease or severe high blood pressure or any other illnesses, liver disease
there is nothing related to the incontinence that would prevent surgery but if there are any other physical illnesses that would affect you during surgery or your healing after, then this may then play a role in determining if you are candidatewo
THANKS FOR NOTHING!
the site allows you to add follow up information
The high blood pressure would not prevent you from having surgery unless it is very uncontrolled and is associated with complications of high blood pressure such as heart failure but you stated there is no heart disease.
Knee replacement would also not prevent you from having surgery either.
If there are no other illnesses present then you certainly should be a candidate for surgery. You should speak to your urologist.
The site allows for a number of follow up questions after the initial answer so that additional information can be given.
Persons normally would add additional information, with no additional cost, after the first question, to clarify.
That means that even following this response, you can state if you have any illnesses that might cause a problem during surgery
The original response was just to name some of the possible conditions that can play a role but most persons then follow up by adding information after that.
Have persons that even use the follow questions to ask about other medical conditions
