I had a open RP mid Oct this year, catheter out on 5th Nov. So I am now about 4 weeks post catheter and I get through a pad every 2 hours, in other words I leek constantly, probably about 1000 ml during the day. I'm 62 never had a problem before the Op. At night lying down I am fairly dry but as soon as I stand up and walk then I cant hold it with the pelvic floor muscle and the sphincter obviously is not doing what it should.
Anybody else out there have a similar problem that would be willing to share how you improved the situation (if at all) I have been back to Urology and they tell me they don't know why I am experiencing this but its out of the normal expectation at this stage. they have put me on a drug called Solifenacin, don't know if this will help as it is early days, but I'm not feeling overly confident. thank you in advance
