Elaine isn’t exactly sure why she had incontinence issues, but she did.
“I don’t know if my supersized babies did damage to me, or what. Welcome to motherhood!” she jokes. “Before treatment, I always had to know where every single bathroom was located. I was afraid to drink liquids. It was a terrible way of life for years,” she shares.
