Looking for some advice as having problems with Incontinence after Da Vinci Prostatectomy 7 weeks ago. I was aware that this would be a problem but surprised at the flow problems as far more severe than when I had a TURP. The pressure is so great when I stand up or cough etc, my urine flows over the top of the pad and down my leg as the pad will not absorb the fast flow, but would take the quantity. Continence Advisor and District Nurse have put me on sheaths with a leg bag and it has taken ages to get the right product as I blew pipes off with pressure and forced sheaths off. Now using additional sticky tape to hold sheath on but cannot go a whole day. Can do my Pelvic Floor Exercises but will not hold flow back, and am concerned that with sheath system I cannot get myself trained. At night in bed I am nearly dry using pad within a nappy and can get to the loo and let water go. In the day I cannot get out of my chair without passing water as standing up. Also have a slight UTI and if wear pads too long get infection below foreskin plus Diarrohea every 3 or 4 days. Any advice or comments appreciated, as not sure what to do.
