Event description

Description

Come to Gilda's Club to learn about how Pelvic Physiotherapy can help those suffering with bowel, bladder and sexual dysfunction post cancer treatment. Various cancer treatments can change the way the pelvic floor muscles work. If left untreated or not talked about sexual, bladder and bowel dysfunction can be a consequence. An event to build awareness and talk about what we don't talk about.
