After Surgery for SUI

The goal of any treatment for incontinence is to improve your quality of life.  Treatments usually work especially when combined with lifestyle changes. It's important to be careful about how much fluid you drink. You also need to plan to urinate regularly. It's also important to maintain a healthy weight. A large amount of weight gain or activities that strain your belly and pelvis may harm surgical repair over time. Common sense and care will help the benefits from these surgeries last long-term.

Overtime, the medical devices implanted with surgery may need adjustments. Stay in touch with your health care provider about follow-up care.

In most cases, great improvements and even cure of all leaks are possible for people who choose SUI surgery.
