Our expert says:
If an operation is the only remedy, you may need to wear an incontinence pad when running. However, at your age I would suggest that you see an urologist for a full and proper evaluation before you contemplate operation - there are various reasons why a bladder leak, it could be an over sensitive bladder muscle, a sphincter that does not close properly or the bladder that "sags" due to muscle weakness.
