Hey Bill,

Welcome from another Vietnam War era vet. Graduating from high school in 1974, I went straight into Navy ROTC and missed the war, but served during the aftermath and with many veterans of the war. I've struggled with idiopathic OAB for years, but finally discovered the cause when I was diagnosed in 2006 with Tarlov Cysts on my s3 sacral nerve. This is a very challenging disability with which we struggle, and I wouldn't be as well-adjusted as I am without a very supportive wife. That said, I've learned a number of management and coping strategies over the years, so hopefully I'll have some helpful suggestions for you along the way. Valuable sites such as this and a wide range of incontinence suppliers online make management today a lot easier than it was back in the late eighties, when I my bladder control challenges worsened to the point they became near disabling. As difficult as it is, I do have a lot to be thankful for.

Welcome, again.

Schooner
