I am 41 years old and have suffered with urinary stress incontinence for years. It was something I just dealt with, limiting my activities as necessary so I wouldn't end up in an embarrassing situation!
I am very active, keep myself in very good shape, but had to quit playing tennis, and running was totally out of the question!
I decided it was time to get back all of the things I missed so much. I was referred to Dr. Anthony Visco at Duke Urogynecology to talk about my options.
I had the robotic sling procedure one month ago, and I just have to say that I wish I had done this fifteen years ago! Dr. Visco has changed my life! To cough, sneeze, and run around without having to think about my bladder is a dream come true.
Thank you, Dr. Visco, for your expertise and your kindness.
