Well done for talking about this!

A bartholin's cyst op doesn't cause stress incontinence, but a residual infection can lead to some

and I agree - pelvic floor exercises seem to have only limited effects, however, other regular exercise can be of enormous benefit, such as jogging, or using a small trampoline (I would advise wearing pads to begin with though - as it will initially cause incontinence until the muscles strengthen)

However - the exercise route may not be as practical for you.
There is a surgical option - several actually.
There is an injection which is successful for many - and usually the first route.
Then there is a TVTO - Trans Urethral Vaginal Tape, this can be very effective and is common
Then there is the Trans Vaginal Mesh - only done by a few centres in the Uk at the moment - so you will need to ask your GP if there is a hospital you can go to which will do it.  The mesh is by far the best option - I worked with a surgeon who was an expert in it, and the results are very very good - but your PCT may not cover the cost - it is more expensive than a TVTO, and generally in many women, a TVTO works.

Thanks Lexi fo rthe advice.  :)

Due to my arthritis jogging and bouncing on a trampoline is out. I take three walks a day and do step ups to keep myself from getting too stiff.

I am about to take my speciman to the GP so it can be sent to the path lab, so we will see what gives.

After the birth of H, a very fast four hour labour, L developed stress incontinence as she had a very bad chest infection and all the coughing so soon after birth, put lots of pressure on weakened muscles. She was so embarrassed that she waited until I was out shopping with her to buy some Tena so she could put them in my basket, rather than let the entire checkout queue know they were hers.

Her reasoning was 'well you're middle-aged and it's expected'  :shock:

Actually I did have a few problems after my early hysterectomy, but I just continued pelvic exercises plus the cranberry juice, for me that worked, so I was very lucky really.

I must admit that when I bought my Tena lady I chose a checkout manned by a woman of my age, rather than one manned by a young man!

I am knocking back the cranberry juice!

Another thing which is good for bladders is beetroot juice.

I don't do beetroot in any shape or form, I cannot stand the taste!

I had the result from the path lab this morning, all is normal I do not have a UTI.

Since coming out into the open with my 'problem' I have been overwhelmed by the number of people of my acquaintance who suffer from it, only much worse than I do! One of my daughters apparently suffers quite badly especially at that time of the month, and I never knew! :(  Incontinence is a topic which must be talked about, however embarrassing. I can't say I enjoy revealing something so personal on a public forum, but feel it is one of the last taboos that must be breached!
