"For ten years I tried every possible method to avoid the discomfort of my prolapsing pelvic organs. It wasn't until I used the pessary ring that I felt comfortable and secure. I am most grateful to Dr. Jill Rabin for her recommendation."
Dear Dr. Rabin,
After the surgery I am happy that I don't have to wear a pessary. My bladder is emptying well and I don't leak urine. I feel that I have a better quality of life now.
"My bladder prolapsed in the early seventies. It protruded and made walking uncomfortable. My gynecologist said that there was no point in raising it as it would 'collapse again within a year'. A women's clinic offered a procedure which left me totally incontinent. Then Dr. Jill Rabin was recommended by a friend. She repaired the prolapse and the incontinence. For a while I had to catheterize myself which I learned to do quite easily. Gradually I urinated normally again. Now I am 85 and totally continent. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Rabin for her efficient and compassionate help."
"I had little expectations when I first went to see Dr. Rabin about my bladder problem. Now, almost two years later, I can say it was the best decision of my life. She was extremely comforting, and her treatment plan was very manageable. I never thought I would be able to feel comfortable in my body, but thanks to Dr. Rabin, I now have control over my incontinence and finally feel like a normal person."
