Hi

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.""

Thanks Chris

This is a new one to me Chris. If it can be arranged and it works it sounds good.

Best wishes, Ian
