Patient : I am a 71 year old woman and have had an incontinence problem for about 2 years. I often need to void instantly after exercise and sometimes just can't make it to the toilet. At times I get no warning but if I enter the bathroom urine will suddenly leak out before I reach the toilet.I have been given medication but dislike taking it because of all the side effects. I do not have a problem in the night and often sleep through till about 5 a.m. and then easily make it to the toilet. Is this a problem that can be controlled by a surgical procedure??
