    Audrey wants the loo every ten mins meaning we cannot go far inthe car and buses are a no/no. Who else has this problem?

    Hi Ronyork

    I think you need to mention this to Audrey's GP; she could have an infection such as cystitis or UTI. Or has she had any 'accidents' that may be playing on her mind?

    The Loo problems going out

    Reported this problem to the doctor and Audrey is on antibiotics (more tablets) but think its all in her mind.

    I know it's a difficult subject Ron, and one I'm having to tackle presently, but if it is due to anxiety as Lyn suggested, would she feel reassured if she were to wear a pad?
    Would the suggestion be better coming from someone else, District Nurse or GP for example?
    Hope you get the problem sorted so you can both go out again.

    Suggest you ask your GP to refer Audrey to the Continence Clinic for advice. As Es says, she may be relieved to go along with anything they suggest.
