A 73 year old female,smoker who was being treated for UTI for about all summer. Eventually developed pneumonia and was hospitalized. Had severe urinary incontinence. Was a cancer survivor for about 45 years. The hospital did not think that was relevant to her case. Until I verbally reminded them as her urine was not clearing. They then did Ultrasound of pelvis and found a tumor the size of a round loaf of bread. This book has helped me understand her course of treatment and be able to follow along with her busy urologist. Sorry her primary doctor did not think it important to wander why she had infections that were not be cured with antibiotics for 4 months. So glad I found this book because it does help us to under stand the urinary system. Not always men have this disease.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
