hello and welcome to healthcare magic!!
from your symptoms it is evident you are suffering from stress incontinence as a result of the surgery consult your gynaecologist immediately and bring it to her/his notice. you will be taught a few pelvic floor strengthening exercises and if it is still persistent a repair might be needed.

hi mam..thank you for your query.. from your history and symptoms its clear that you are suffering from mixed incontinence which is a combination of stress incontinence and urge incontinence.. you must have to get consulted to a gynaecologist and get some tests done like stress test, urinalysis,urodynamics,usg of pelvic organs.. dont worry it s a treatable condition.. i hope this wil be helpful to you.. wish u a speedy recovery

I have been having digestion problem over a long period of time. This June I had throat pain and then developed cough . After this the cough became bad and I started choking while coughing. This became so bad that for few minutes I would be choking and struggling for breath. While coughing would pass urine invoulantarily. Consulted GP and ENT . They said that I was suffering from acidity and that the acid was leaking into my esophagus and causing irritation in the throat. Have taken anti biotic and some syrup also. Though the choking problem is under control to certain extent. Now when I yawn I get the cough and slight choking. Please help. What should I do? I have throat irritation and always want to clear my throat.
