Wondering what Medtronic Bladder Control Therapy feels like? Or what it's like to go through the evaluation or implant procedure? Talk with an ambassador! An ambassador is someone who is receiving Medtronic Bladder Control Therapy and has volunteered to share his or her experience.
InterStim ambassadors are not medical experts or Medtronic employees. They're people who experience bladder control problems and are willing to answer your questions about life with the InterStim System.
Rebecca explains why she's an InterStim Ambassador: "My story has been 38 years in the making and I finally have a "normal" life because of my Interstim! If I can reach one person and help them, then all the pain and humiliation I went through will be worth it. The biggest difference in my life now is that I can travel, but I can also fully enjoy my other hobbies as well. I like to sew, read, shop, hunt, hike, draw, boat, and social media."
You may want to ask the ambassador questions like:
The InterStim Ambassador Program gives you the opportunity to talk on the phone with someone who can relate to what you're experiencing. These ambassadors want to share their experience with you and answer your questions about life with the InterStim System. Because they have gone through the evaluation and are receiving long-term therapy, ambassadors offer insight that can be very helpful.
There is no cost to talk with an InterStim ambassador.
When you sign up to talk to an ambassador, you'll be able to view profiles of our ambassadors, choose the ambassador you want to talk to, and schedule a time that is convenient for you.
