This went well. I have tried two medications to control the urge incontinence but they increase my dry mouth to the extent of not being able to speak for long. There is one final med to try before a visit to urology. I showed the nurse my urine test from rheumy which showed high protein and creatinine but added “only to be expected”. There do seem to be signs my kidneys are playing up.
Here comes the good bit. After a couple of years of shelling out for extra strength Tena pads from Amazon, I shall now get the free NHS version ( seem the same) delivered to the door every three months.
The moral is, invest in granny panties and never let embarrassment put you off doing something about it.
