57 y.o.; 5 1/2 months post daVinci prostatectomy. Anatomical problem during surgery. Protate removed in sections. Total loss of nerves on left side of prostate. Loss of approx 40 percent of nerves on right side of gland. Remain totally incontinent from day after catheter was removed. Must change Depends 4 times per day and pads 12 times per day. Often leak around leg area of Depends. Surgeon says he will wait until I am 12 months post-op before making any recommendations. Practice Kegels multiple times per day. May have urine build up in bladder only when sitting or lying down. By the time I get to toilet I cannot get undergarments down withough getting urine on waiste band of trousers. Unable to stand up and urinate. Very challenging times. Thoughts? Recommendations?
