Continence – Part 1

WARNING:  explicit content.

 

 

 

One of the problems with prostate removal is that is, at least at first, makes you incontinent.  The day I came home from the hospital I basically dripped all day.  I have to wear pads (the same material combination as disposable diapers).

But somehow when I went to bed, my bladder filled and I had to get up to use the bathroom — twice during the night.

Now, day by day, it seems to be getting better.  It is worst when I stand, better when I sit and better still when I sort of slouch, e.g. while watching TV.

I’m still at home recovering.  Next week I return to the office.  It’s going to be a nuisance but I guess I’ll be able to handle it.  We will see.

(Note:  I call this part 1 because I expect to have more to say–and presumably progress to report–as time goes by.)

  1. All the best with your recovery Glenn. It helps if you work with a pelvic floor physiotherapist to help with the leakage and there are some great resources available to help you there too. check out our site for starters and contact your local physical therapy or physiotherapy association for your nearest pelvic floor physio.
