I'm 62 years old, female, and was born with the rare birth defect of bladder exstrophy (bladder on the outside of the abdominal wall, inside out). After numerous surgeries as a child and adolescent, I grew up completely incontinent of urine. But, life went on and I finally gained urinary control by the age of 20 after my last surgery where my ureturs were re-routed.
So, now I've been experiencing OAB for about five months and have tried Vesicare and Detrol LA, to no avail. I'm curious about other people's medication and/or treatment successes that I may research since I'm feeling desperate.
BTW, I highly recommend Poise pads since they absorb everything!
Thank in advance -- K
