6 weeks after surgery still incontinent
 
I had radical robotic prostatectomy 6 weeks ago today. Catheter came out
after a week. From the first night after it came out, I did alright sitting and
sleeping, but when standing almost nothing stays in. When I am on my feet over two hours, it starts to burn my penis--drinking plenty water mitigates this somewhat, except more pads are getting filled. I was put on a regimen of morning and evening kegels of 3 sets of 10 short bursts, and 3 sets of 10 holding for 5 seconds--but still no improvement. I go back for my 6 week follow up in two days, my blood test of a week ago shows less than .02 psa which is
good if it stays that way. Saw the doctor two weeks ago and he told me there
was plenty of time and to keep up with the kegels. Any one else out there had a similar timeline and eventually got some progress? I don't know if I should be going to regular therapy, I will ask about that when I see the Dr. in two days.

So i see this is a few months later, hows it going now?
I would like to hear as im just 3 days out from cath removal after my robotic prostatectomy...i can make it through the night, even getting up to go pee twice during the night, i just clench then walk calmly to the toilet without leakage until i can sit down then release and its pretty normal..

Its during the day, and yes when standing or bending i leak pretty bad

Did yours get better and how long, any tips
