Ambassador 4 – Beckie’s Story
My Sacral Neuromodulation Therapy procedure and recovery went smoothly. I didn't need pain medication at all. And since I had experimented with stimulation settings during the trial assessment, we knew just the level I needed for it to be effective right away. The hardest part for me was not being as active as I wanted to be right after the procedure – my doctor said no running or lifting weights for 6 weeks. I haven't needed to catheter since then. Today, I go to the bathroom every 4 to 6 hours, I don't get up at night, and I don't have any pain or pressure.
The best thing is that I can do almost anything now – go for 10-mile jogs, wear a bikini, golf, and eat and drink normally. I can make it all the way through a trip to the grocery store without a bathroom break, and I no longer have to keep catheters in my purse, at work, or in the car.
