Question by Rey: What suppliments can be taken for stage 3 prostate cancer BLADDER INCONTINENCE?
I have a relative, 76 year old, with stage 3 prostate cancer. He is taking hormone shots before undergoing radiation treatment. In the meantime he is suffering from an uncontrollable bladder (excessive urination). Are there vitamins available to lessen this problem? I was thinking super beta tablets as a first choice…open to natural remedies as well. Thanks all!

There should be several different medications available through his primary care physician. They may not be “natural” but they will help allot and prevent the embarrassing and frustrating accidents.

Question by SadiePolly: Why do women seem to experience bladder problems and incontinence more than men?
I can understand women experiencing bladder problems if they have been through childbirth. But I have never had a baby, yet I have had bladder problems before, including a small bladder infection a few months ago. And during my life, I have known female friends who have not gone though childbirth, yet had bladder problems or slight incontinence problems at some point or other.

Their urethra is much shorter than men’s and if bacteria enters it finds its way quickly into the bladder. Women should also wash after sex in case bacteria has found its way there.

Question by Matt M: Would my students feel better if I “came out of the closet” about my incontinence problem?
I teach 6th grade math. Last week, the heater was on way too high, we were all groggy because it was right after lunch, and one of the boys in our class peed in his pants. Anyone who knows 6th graders can tell you that the other students have been making his life a living hell since. This was the spark that got me to wondering: should I come out with my incontinence? Due to scoliosis, I have basically no control over my bladder and bowels. That’s not so bad. The worst is the chronic pain. Short of surgery, which is too risky, nothing can be done to fix the problem. So I manage the problem. With diapers. I’ve always been discreet about it, but now I’m thinking: I’m an adult, not a 6th grader. Why don’t I tell the kids about it? I’m sure several of my students wet the bed, it’s just statistics. Telling them my problem might make them feel better about their own bathroom problems, that they’re not alone. Or woudl this not be fitting given my role as their teacher. What should I do?

And you’d lose your job when the conservative parents call the school to complain about your inappropriate conversation.

Question by Lisa: how much corn silk should i give my staffordshire bull terrier to help with incontinence?
my staff is 12 years old and weighs about 18 kg and is becoming frequently more and more incontinent with her bladder. I have researched the net and discovered that corn silk is good to stop this problem but do not know how much to give her.
She is 12 years old and 18kg and when i took her to the vet all he said was “she doesnt look senile to me” gave her the once over and charged me £40 for the privilege. I am looking into alternative therapy treatments for her as do not wish her to be on conventional drugs for the rest of her life and would rather use a more natural approach to solving the problem.
Answer by Pitbullmama
I never heard of that. I would call the vet and ask their opinion. Poor girl, I hope she feels better soon.
