What options are there

5 months ago

When I saw the Urologist last week, I really had it set in my mind that there would be some surgery on or around my actually bladder. I had heard of some things called a mesh, or a sling, or pulling up your bladder. She really only had two options to offer, Botox or Axonics Therapy. Do any of you have any experience, thoughts, advice? I really need something that is going to work. I know many of you are in my boat (which I had no clue of before I started reading the posts) with having to pee 25 or 30 times a day and 6 or 7 times at night, getting no sleep. If there is another method besides what she is offering, would a General Surgeon do it? I am trying to get it done before the end of the year because I have met my deductibles.
