Must be the post code lottery again, but was your op private or NHS ? My sequence was as follows.
Pre op Incontinence clinic / catheter training. Pads arrived few days later.
Post op district nurse twice in week one,
Incontinence nurse in clinic during week three.
Call from GP to check all was okay week three.
ED consultant followed by appointment with pump technician during week six.
Meeting with consultant/surgeon in week 7.
Already in place nurse led clinic 3 months post op check.
Further appointment with incontinence nurse.
All triggered by initial diagnosis.
