Re: prostate and incontinence

Dear David , I am sorry you are still having a tough time after the surgery . Incontinance can happen after prostate Cancer surgery . Pelvic floor exercises can help but if your still having issues it maybe worth seeing an incontinance specialist to seek advise and see what can be done to get you dry. They will offer video urodynamics test to see what happens when you pee.
