You must find a doctor who specializes in Women with Bladder Issues. I do not want to scare you. There are doctors who have excellent records and will tell you that they have worked with caring for women. That is not enough. You must ask them do they have any publications, editorials on subjects in regard to women and bladder issues. What type of credentials in treating women do you have. What city do you reside in. Read articles by doctors like, Dr. Nitti, Dr. Blavias, Dr. Santos, Dr. Richard Santucci., Dr. Rutman want doctors who are trained in diagnoising WOMEN I learned the hard way from a misdiagnois that I am still dealing with because the doctor who misdiagnois me went to the best schools, yes he said he worked with women, but later found out that was not his speciality,.....WORKING WITH WOMEN WITH BLADDER AND PELVIC CONDITIONS.
