I had a radical prostatectomy on 8-29. My recovery seems to being going well. Can you all help with the incontinance, How long is normal?
Good morning Capt,
I have not seen any past postings by you so I am assuming you are a new visitor. Welcome to our club that no-one wants to belong to.
The length of time that incontinence is a problem varies greatly from patient to patient. In my case it was less than two months. However, I practiced dilligently the kegel contraction of the abdomen muscles. I did this prior to and following the surgery itself. Within, 6 months I was totally dry, with a rare exception when I forgot to keep the muscle contracted, such as a sneeze or cough.
When did you have your surgery and have you had any other complications? Feel free to e-mail me at this site if you have anything you want to discuss off-line.
Best of luck,
Surgery was 8-29 without any complications at all. Went home on 2nd day.
