In Reply to: stress incontinence due to prostatectomy posted by Dilly on May 23, 2000 at 08:41:06:

: I'm looking for a general idea of how long stress incontinece lasts in a 60 year man who recently had his prostate removed due to cancer. Do you know of any new treatments?

there is a good article on prostate cancer in this months us news and world reports. they tell of a 72 year old man who the problem did not go away for and he had a new procedure in which an aritifical sphincter was inplanted, and he no longer has the problem. according to the article something like 8% of men have it after surgery. some people it goes away on its own
