I had my Prostrate removed in April 2015 by Da Vinci Robot, 5 days in hospital, about 7 or 8 days with a catheter in, two nights of weeing myself in bed whilst asleep and a few little leaks. In 2017 if I am to leak its more than likely when I sneeze but I have learned how to manage it by bending over then sneezing, not to stand upright!
When I first came out of hospital with the catheter in that was the worst period. From day 2 of being discharged I set myself the task of walking around my local wood, about 2 miles, each day. I continued when the catheter came out, day after day, practicing 'grip' excises like crazy. I almost was in despair, always had to stop for a wee or two and then suddenly on one day in particular, I walked around the circuit and did not have to wee at all. For me a fantastic moment and since then, except for the odd sneeze, have never had a problem.
The only problem I experienced was in July 2015. My hobby is long distance hiking and camping and I decided I was now back to normal so started to hike the GR10 route in France across the full length of the Pyrenees from the Atlantic to the Med. On day 17 I decided to spend one night in a hotel (horrible day, I was wet, cold and miserable) and when I walked into the shower room, with a full length mirror in front of me, I suddenly realised I now had a hernia! I quickly came to the conclusion that I wasn't as well as I thought I was. I had to walk on for another 3 days and whilst camped at a small site I met a young French woman who spoke good English. Eventually I told her that I was experiencing this problem (I was ready to give up and go back to the UK) but she phoned around and found a medical warehouse for me, 60km north from the site. The following day I hitchhiked there, bought a truss, put it on, hitchhiked back to my tent and decided to carry on with my hike.
When I returned to the UK I saw my surgeon within two weeks and had my hearnia repaired 10 days later. No problems at all since.
