A million questions ran through her mind. Could she keep working? Would she be able to remain active and take part in activities she liked? Would she have to change the clothes she wore? These questions and so many more kept Marsha feeling isolated and alone. However, when she ran across an article about managing urinary incontinence she began to see this was something she could deal with and still live her life to the fullest.

It is important to consult with your healthcare professional for weight loss recommendations.
