"You have turned my life around"

I am 87 years old, with a problem of the prostate gland. Before I met Dr. Baum, I went to the bathroom every 30-60 minutes. After Dr. Baum's treatment on my prostate, I go only 5 times per day and only 1 time at night! You turned my life around. I am so very grateful!

-Sidney Daigle

I want to thank you for your due diligence. You saved my life. I highly recommend you!

-Dwight Bastian

Thank you Dr. Baum! Because of you I'm back in the "rodeo"!

-Gerald Wallace

When To Seek Medical Care for Overactive Bladder
Approximately 33 million Americans are affected by overactive bladder -- a common bladder control problem in which a frequent and intense urge to urinate may be accompanied by wetting accidents. Contrary to popular belief, men are just as likely as women to develop overactive bladder, although women are more likely to experience wetting accidents.
How to tell if you have overactive bladder. If you answer yes to one or more of the following questions, speak to your doctor about overactive bladder. Your doctor may refer you to a urologist for more detailed testing to determine if you do in fact have overactive bladder.
Overactive bladder questions:
Do you urinate more than eight times in a 24-hour period?
Do you go to the bathroom so frequently that it interferes with the things you want to do?
Do you have to get up two or more times at night to go to the bathroom?
Do you frequently have strong, sudden urges to urinate?
Do you have uncontrollable urges to urinate that sometimes result in wetting yourself?
Do you use pads to protect your clothing from wetting?
When you go out, do you make sure you know the location of available bathrooms?
Do you avoid certain places if you think there won't be an available bathroom?


Bottom Line: If you answered yest to any of these quesitons, you should check with with your doctor. Help is available. You don't need to be a prisioner held hostage in the restroom.


From John Hopkins Health Newsletter, 2-22-11

The Wall Street Journal (1/11, Hobson) "Health Blog" reported that some 65% of men experience incontinence after undergoing surgery for prostate cancer. Some patients opt for more surgery to correct the issue. Now, however, a paper appearing in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that a therapy, often prescribed for women, may help relieve the problem.
The behavioral intervention consisted of four visits scheduled two weeks apart,. Men received education on their pelvic floor anatomy and learned how to do the pelvic-floor-muscle exercises. They were also advised to hold their urine stream during voiding once a day for two weeks, keep a bladder diary, avoid caffeine, and to distribute their fluid throughout the day.
After eight weeks, the researchers found that the average number of incontinence episodes dropped 55 percent, for the men in the behavioral therapy group, and down 51 percent, for men who'd had biofeedback and electrical stimulation as well as behavioral therapy. The control group had a 24 percent reduction, on average, in incontinence episodes.

Throughout a lifetime, women's bodies undergo tremendous stress, including pregnancy, childbirth, strenuous exercise, and gynecologic surgeries. All of these stresses -- accumulated over the years -- can weaken the natural support structure of the pelvis, which can cause the pelvic organs to shift from their natural, intended position and/or to protrude into or outside of the vaginal canal. It's actually not an uncommon problem, and it can affect women of many ages and health circumstances.

Different types of organs protruding into the vaginal canal cause different types of prolapse. These include:

Bladder (Cystocele)Small bowel (Enterocele)

Rectum (Rectocele)

Vagina (Vaginal vault), which can happen after hysterectomies.

If you're experiencing any symptom of a weakened pelvic floor, chances are there's at least a little discomfort involved. Sometimes, the symptoms can be debilitating, affecting your ability to lead an active life -- or even to be sexually intimate.
