Kathy's story - A better view

Before Urgent® PC treatment, urgency and frequency necessitated the need for an elaborate system to avoid accidents

For nearly 15 years, Kathy, now 59, had an elaborate system to manage her urinary frequency and urinary urgency. The first thing she did when she went to a mall was locate the restrooms. Before being seated at a restaurant, she asked the waiter to point out the ladies room. On the long car ride from Michigan to Florida, where her daughter lives, she pulled off at almost every rest stop. During the night she woke up two or three times to go to the bathroom. This was the most disruptive and upsetting part of it all. Kathy couldn't remember the last time she had slept through the night.

Kathy thought her life would go on like this forever. It was a huge drain on her, her family, and friends, but she didn't know what else to do. Two different medications and Kegel exercises didn't alleviate her symptoms. She still went to the bathroom ten times during the workday. She still couldn't take her twin grandsons to the movies. "I couldn't leave them alone in the theater while I ran off to the bathroom," she said.

Then one day while reading the local newspaper she came across an article about an upcoming clinical trial for Urgent PC and signed up right away. After receiving weekly Urgent PC treatments for thirteen weeks, Kathy now receives a treatment every five weeks to maintain her results. The results have been "life-changing," and a "huge relief."

Within four weeks of beginning treatment, Kathy was taking fewer trips to the bathroom. Now she can watch a movie with her grandsons, uninterrupted. She can book a window seat on a flight without worrying about bothering her seatmate with frequent trips to the restroom. She can drive nonstop for three-and-a-half hours to visit family. She can golf without fear of wetting her pants."I don't know how it works. I just know that it does," she said about Urgent PC.

Most important, Kathy is sleeping through the night for the first time in years. "This has been the biggest change," she said. "I don't get up once.”
