Actress Linda Robson Launches New OAB Campaign

26th April 2013

It affects around 7 million people, can leave sufferers feeling depressed, and is more prevalent that diabetes, angina and osteoarthritis. OAB (Overactive Bladder) can leave its’ sufferers feeling trapped in their own homes, but it remains a condition that can be simply swept under the carpet, or even laughed at.

With 80% of people agreeing that wetting themselves in public is the most embarrassing thing imaginable, it’s no wonder that the condition has a serious impact of every aspect of your life. Sufferers admit to intentionally avoiding social situations or physical activities, and to having on-going disturbed nights.    

Linda Robson is fighting to raise awareness of the condition, after watching her Mum struggle with it for years. With research revealing that over half of women (54%) don’t like discussing the issue at all – and one in three being uncomfortable even seeking help from their GP, it’s clear that embarrassment is prevailing over seeking treatment.

Linda speaks to Debbie Stuart, Clinical Manager of the Bladder and Bowel Foundation, about her advice for any sufferers.
