What inspires you to advocate for women with urinary incontinence? Dr. Eilber: What I really like to hear is patients say they got their life back. What I don’t like to hear are patients saying, I just wished I had done it sooner. And if it’s one thing that I can strongly encourage women to do is if you are bothered by it now, you are going to be more bothered in five years, and you will be very regretful had you not done it sooner. And especially the patients who are in their 60s, maybe early 70s, they postpone it until maybe their health is not so good, but they finally have to do it, and they really feel like they had missed some of their “golden years” because of the incontinence.
