Thankfully, he doesn't have any of the incontinence issues. If someone is going through the same thing or has any advice please help.
Sounds to me like your husband has the same thing that myself and I'm sure many of the people that have had RP experienced after surgery.
I too had severe spasms that were very painful after surgery and my urologists gave me some king of medication to stop the spasms. I don't remember what the medication was called ( it was 4 years ago ), but it worked very well and stopped those painful spasms. Eventually the spasms stopped by themselves and I was fine without the medication. I can certainly recall how painful it was to urinate after the surgery ( and while I had the catheter in as well ) and I actually tried not to go for as long as I could hold it, just to avoid those spasms.
I'm certain if you talk to your urologist he will be able to prescribe some kind of medication to stop those spasms and I'm sure your husband will really appreciate that!
Take care and all the best...Lionel
