I found the following article on this site and wondered if anyone has had any experience of a, getting funding for the treatment and b, actually having the treatment.
" "Percutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation (PTNS) This treatment may help to reduce how often some men urinate and leak urine. It is quite a new treatment and is only offered at some
hospitals. It’s sometimes called stoller afferent nerve stimulation (SANS).
A thin needle is placed under the skin just above your ankle. A low electrical current is passed through the needle. The current travels
up a nerve in your leg and affects the nerves that control urination. This can help to stop the bladder from emptying before it’s full.
You’ll normally have PTNS once a week for 12 weeks. Each treatment lasts about half an hour.
PTNS has no serious side effects, although the area where the needle enters the skin may feel a
little sore afterwards.""
