Thank you for signing up to receive weekly educational emails about Urgent PC percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) therapy and how to get the most out of your overactive bladder treatment plan. This information is not intended to replace medical advice. You should always talk to your provider if you have questions about your care.

Woman with a Great View

Just a few months ago, you started your Urgent PC PTNS journey. Remember how bad your symptoms were? If not, check your first voiding diary. Look at you now ... ready to take on the world -- or at least a short road trip.

You still have one Urgent PC PTNS therapy session in the initial series. If you haven't already done so, take the opportunity to ask your provider about what is next.  Don't walk away without a long-term plan. You owe it to yourself! 

Questions About What's Next

When should I come in for my next session?
Make sure you discuss the plan for maintenance therapy and that you know what your provider would like you to do if your symptom control starts to slip before your next scheduled appointment.

What else should I do to ensure continue success? 
While Urgent PC PTNS therapy has been proven to help patients get their symptoms under control, it's not magic. Based on your personal history, your provider will likely have suggestions about things to watch (e.g., caffeine, spicy foods, fluids before bed) and things to do (e.g., pelvic floor exercises).

Are there other treatments I should consider? 
The majority of patients who achieve success with Urgent PC PTNS therapy are able to achieve long-term bladder control with occasional treatments. However, if you don't think Urgent PC PTNS therapy is the long-term solution for you, speak up. There are other options that may work.
