Sylvia's Story - My life is richer
Urgent® PC got Sylvia’s night-time frequency under control and she can now sleep through the night.
I had been treated for about 19 years for bladder urgency. I actually would go every hour, hour and a half and sometimes more than that in an hour. I couldn't go anywhere without knowing where there was a bathroom. And I would always have to go to the bathroom before I left the house if I was going on any kind of trip or even to the mall. It even impacted when I went to a movie because if a movie was longer than 2 hours, I couldn't possibly make it through the entire movie. And, I was getting up every hour to two hours so I really wasn't sleeping.
When my new urologist first told me about this procedure, I got a little nervous because I'm needle-phobic. I can't look at needles. I have a hard time with blood tests - I do them but I really struggle. After the first treatment, I was a little light-headed. During the second treatment, the needle needed repositioning and I got a little nervous as well. But after that, it was so beneficial that even when the needle needed repositioning, I could bear it.
PTNS is so worth it. It has changed my life, it really has; it's much richer.The benefits have been incredible. I sleep through the night which has been the biggest difference and I'm more refreshed during the day; I'm a different person. I still, out of habit, look for the bathrooms and where they are. But I know I don't need them. It reminds me of when I was shopping with my two daughters recently. And I said, "Does anyone have to go to the bathroom." And they looked at me and said, "No, but I know you do." And I said, "No, actually I don't."
The recommendation I would have for others if they were suffering, the way I did, is that they certainly give it a shot. It can change the quality of your life.
