Zunilde gradually turns himself into a sleepless man, very placid and averse to those who look upon him. He soon stopped teaching and first sought retirement from the great technical colleges where he held the highest management position.
He spent a long time reading in his large house and always received greetings from family and friends in his backyard. Zunilde was a woman with a lot of drive, always about maintaining a clean and flawless image. She often recalled her father’s words: “Daughters, women should be like flowers, beautiful to look at, soft to the touch, and sweet-smelling.”
His family began to notice how, over the years, he changed his clothing colors to dark clothes, his favorite being black or navy blue. Zunilde rarely went to social gatherings, he preferred gatherings in the homes of his relatives and, when he had to do a job, he preferred to come first, making haste to locate the nearest toilet that he had to. must be looked at all the time that he remained in the place.
When one of his four children, “given up in great pain,” noticed that his colors rose, he rebuked him, inviting him not to interfere. One morning, while watching a television program, they interviewed a doctor who said: “Ladies are also seen by urologists, among other things, for the involuntary loss of urine, which is called incontinence, which can be of different types.”
A secret kept by Zunilde, with great shame, for several years, was related exactly to this situation. A strong sneezing is noticed in the afternoon with the involuntary loss of a few drops of urine, afterwards when he coughs, then when he laughs. Afterwards, the warm humidity was present with the least effort to get up or walk.
Zunilde did everything she could to avoid contact, first with daily pads, then with sanitary pads, for at least three days. Finally, to the end of the hay. The use of suitable clothing to conceal any stain was necessary. She was afraid that the smell of the uremics, given off by the damage, would be liked by someone she knew.
Rejection of multiple requests for intimacy made by the husband, using various excuses until the serious conflicts that forced the dissolution of the solid marriage, which did not celebrate his silver wedding anniversary.
That urologist caught his attention and allowed words to understand the result of stress incontinence, which has a history of gravity and childbirth, which weakens the muscles of the pelvic area, lowering the structures that support them, among others, the bladder and the tube of its exit. called the urethra.
When asked by the interviewer, he answered obesity, lung problems, chronic constipation and also other efforts to influence that require increased abdominal pressure, for example: lifting heavy weights.
In high hopes, he asked to be scheduled to undergo a complete medical evaluation, and they received a very detailed medical history. A physical examination revealed the presence of prolapse or prolapse of both the bladder and the urethra and so-called urodynamic studies established that his sphincter did not close with sufficient force, allowing easy urination with minimal pressure increases. pressure
Zunilde, complying with the necessary protocols, was led to the operating room, where the surgical treatment of the prolapse was carried out, taking the descending organs to their natural place. A kind of tape or strap was also placed under the urethra, giving it the necessary strength and support.
The next day she regained her continence, she no longer passed urine with effort, she said goodbye to the staff, who accompanied her with a smile and grace, and after a few weeks she bought a dress in a colorful pastel color.
