Facts about Incontinence and Ostomy
Urinary incontinence is a common condition in men and women of all ages. There are two main types — stress incontinence, which can cause leakage when you cough, sneeze, laugh or lift something heavy, and urge incontinence, which is a sudden, strong urge to urinate.
An ostomy is a surgically created opening in the body for the discharge of waste. In North America alone there are about 70,000 ostomy surgeries performed every year. Colostomies, ileostomies and urostomies are performed on people of all ages for a wide variety of causes.
