Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) are a relatively common, but unpleasant problem which affects the bladder and/or kidneys. Symptoms may include; changes in bladder habits, burning pain with urination, back or tummy pain, urinary urgency, incontinence, a high fever and even delirium if left untreated.
When I was a teenager (Terry), I was looking for a way to feel great in the white jumpsuits made so popular by ABBA (Yes, I’m that old!)
Terry Wesselink is our Continence and Pelvic Health Physiotherapist – she adds to our Blogging repertoire:
As a physiotherapist working in pelvic floor health, I am often surprised by how little my patients know about incontinence. Often my patients think I will be shocked by their problem, or that they are simply wasting my time. I often hear phrases like: “I’ve never told anyone but..” ; “My mum says it runs in the family and I just need to get used to it.” ; “I’m too young to have this problem..” ; “Men don’t leak.”
A few weeks ago my youngest child officially transitioned from childhood – to teenager. Being a December baby his birthday marks the closing of the school year, the beginning of summer holidays and the end of the calendar year.
