Understanding the Taboos About Bladders and Bowels... and more.

For individuals with live day to day with
bladder and/or bowel incontinence. 
Managing Life with Incontinence is the newest book from The Simon Foundation for Continence. Written specifically for individuals who live day to day with bladder and/or bowel incontinence, the book also provides information that will be useful for home caregivers, physicians, and nurses who understand their patients’ frustrations and wish to more fully understand the quality of life issues facing people with incontinence that cannot be easily managed, controlled or cured.

In recent years, new treatments and medications for incontinence have brought hope to many, yet the fact remains that millions of individuals worldwide cannot be cured by current medical science. These individuals need inspiration, empowerment, and easy access to information for the management of their incontinence in order to rise above its personal impact and strive for a full life. This book fills that need.

Between chapters such as “Understanding the Taboos About Bladders and Bowels,” “How We View Our Own Bodies,” “Resilience,” and “Communicating with Health Care Professionals” the reader will find “Lived Experiences” - intimate and inspiring autobiographical stories written by eleven individuals from around the world. With amazing candor they explain how incontinence affected their lives, and how they fought back to build lives of their choosing.

The book’s editors include incontinence experts Professor Christine Norton (UK), Anita Saltmarche (Canada), Mary Radtke Klein (US) and Cheryle Gartley (US). The international perspective the editors bring is apparent in the book’s breadth and inclusion of cultural differences and exhibits the universality of the reaction to a misbehaving bladder and/or bowel. Among the well-known authors who contributed chapters are: Diane Newman, PhD, a nationally recognized urology nurse; Rick Rader, MD, editor-in-chief of Exceptional Parent Magazine; Drs. Ronald Rozensky and Steven Tovian, health psychologists; and Professor Christine Norton, a world-renowned fecal incontinence expert.

Managing Life with Incontinence is available for $16.95 plus shipping and handling at: www.managinglifewithincontinence.org. Additional information about the book is also available on the website.
