How can I treat my urine incontinence in Singapore, and how much will it cost?Urology Gynaecology Health & Fitness
I am a 61 year old female. I have urine incontinence and have to use a panty liner for accidental leakages. But the problem is exacerbated when I get sick and cough badly, then the urine is like a burst pipe such that it is extremely difficult to go out (even just to see a doctor downstairs). What are effective solutions to my problem? (e.g. treatment / surgical procedure, including cost of treatment/surgery/timeframe needed)
The gold standard objective investigation to test for urinary incontinence is called a urodynamic study. This test is able to determine if you suffer from stress urinary incontinence, urge incontinence or a combination of both.
In addition, it can also determine the severity of the urinary incontinence. In this way, we can then recommend oral medication or surgery as the best and most effective method of treatment.
