since then i have been leaking a lot , i was aware i would leak but did not think it would be so much and for this long. Because i had a TURP in May and recovered quickly i think i expected to do the same again. I’m wondering how long this leakage will go on for and when should i expect it to start easing off. I am 61 and have always been active, but in all honesty i am struggling to deal with the leaking as i find it rather degrading.
Sorry to hear this. The type of incontinence you should experience is small leaks, similar to stress incontinence. As you are having heavy leaks, I recommend visiting a Doctor for a scan to ensure there isn’t a serious problem.
Everyone is different when it comes to the speed of regaining continence, so I would ask your surgeon about your specific circumstance.
Are you practicing pelvic floor exercises? This can speed up recovery.
Let me know if you need any guidance on choosing protective products.
