Finding Relief from Over Active Bladder

At 68, Marguerite Morris had been afraid to leave her house. For about nine months she had searched for a solution to her loss of bladder control. She finally found the Women’s Center for Pelvic Health where doctors were able to treat her over active bladder. Marguerite received weekly percutaneous tibular nerve stimulation treatment in which a mild electrical signal is sent to the nerves that control the bladder. The procedure was simple and painless, requiring an electrode attached to her ankle and a pad on her toe. Marguerite said she felt a slight tingling in her foot, but the thirty-minute treatments in the doctor’s office were painless. After three months Marguerite was able to return to a normal life. “I can go to the store or go shopping and not worry about it,” she says. “I feel more normal again.”
