I would very much appreciate anyone responding to this post. I'm starting to get to the "worried" stage where I'm wondering if this is the way it's going to be for the rest of my life.
I am 64, was diagnosed with cancer on July 29, 2009 I had robotic surgery on Nov. 3rd, my catheter out on the 13th. Saturday, the 14th, I was running errands all over town, in and out of the car, walking, whatever and with no problems. By Monday it was going down hill. Now 1 week later I still can barely get up from sitting without losing something that means a pad change, probably would lose it all if I weren't so close to the bathroom. Walking is fine but if I sneeze or cough it could be trouble. I am doing my Kegel exercises.
I would love to hear from those with any like experiences. Did it get better? How soon? What else can I do?
I am of course willing to share my experiences with anyone I think it would help.
