Research shows that before a surgical consultation for incontinence, patients (male and female) should see a Pelvic Health Physiotherapist (who uses internal examination to assess the pelvic floor and teach appropriate exercises). In Britain, clients with these issues will not even be considered for surgery until they have tried 6 weeks of Pelvic Physiotherapy. Ontario, and most of Canada, has not yet adopted this practice. Talk to your doctor about pelvic floor Physiotherapy before considering surgery.
