I always used to think that a little bladder leakage was just a part of getting older. But when ‘a little’ started to turn into ‘a lot,’ I knew I needed to find help. After all, I’ve always been an active person – jogging, yoga, cycling, travel, you name it – and I wasn’t about to let bladder problems stop me from doing the things I loved. That’s when I found the NAFC. They helped me realize that bladder leakage isn’t inevitable, and that there are real solutions out there for people like me. I found a great physician through their doctor finder and a whole community of people going through the same things I was. It was comforting to know that I wasn’t alone and that I had people I could talk to. Honestly, if it weren’t for the folks at the NAFC, I don’t know where I’d be today. The only thing I do know is that I wouldn’t be back on track, exercising and living life on my terms.
There were a lot of changes I figured I might have to deal with when I had my prostate removed, but bladder leakage wasn’t one of them. But sure enough, right after my surgery, there it was. I would bend down to pick up my grandkids and get more than I bargained for. Forget about doing sports – physical activity of any type was a sure way to set things off. That’s when I turned to the NAFC. They had a ton of information online that helped point me in the right direction. I used their doctor finder to see a specialist nearby who had a real treatment plan for me. And their forums helped me get in touch with others going through the same thing, so I knew I wasn’t alone. Thank goodness for the folks at the NAFC – they made a difference that literally changed my life.
