My daughter is 19 and seemed to have suffered from several urine type/kidney infections for several years. Only very recently she has confided that she has been leaking not so much from coughing, but sneezing, She also can't hold urine when she needs...she has to go there and then, and often its not that much. Our GP didn't take her seriousy at first dismissing her as \"being too young\". After further time, and appts she was referred to a totally unsympathetic consultant, who said other than phsyio there is nothing that can be done. As the patient above, he asked her to cough over a sheet of paper and nothing leaked. he didn't listen when she tried to explain that it wasn't coughing that caused leaks. He then said the only option was surgery where some kind of mesh was fitted; but said \"because of her age it wasn't an option as she may want children in the future\" (She wan;t asked anyway). She is due to go travelling/studying abroad, and so far the physio appt hasn't materialised. Does anyone know of anything else or any suggestions. It is beginning to ruin and run her life. My heart breaks for her. Tena lady helps odour and ruining underwear, but she isn't even 20!!
