Hi,its been a year since my prostate was removed and all is fine with my PSA (0.01).

My problem is that my incontinence seems to have stopped improving? I exercise 6-7 times a day.

Most mornings Im almost dry then I get a 'wet' one?? I leak on and off when walking and still have a lot of stress incontinence? Is this a far as I will get or is there anything else I can do to improve it? If I have to live with it thats fine,but if I can make it better I would like to know how? 

Thanks, Terry

Regular Pelvic floor exercises and don't strain when exercising.

When I was still more incontinent than I wanted to be I got a referral to the incontinence nurse. Only saw her once and it was sorted.

Terry,

Have you had a session with a pelvic health physiotherapist, to check you are doing the pelvic floor exercises correctly? You should be able to request this through your urologist, or maybe even clinical nurse specialist.

If you've been doing pelvic floor exercises correctly for a year, then you probably need some urological investigation to find out how to improve it much more, but if you aren't doing pelvic floor exercises correctly, then you need to get that fixed.
