I had a combination of hormone suppressant and radiotherapy and, apart from the usual side effects, I am hopeful of a cure. I restarted physical exercise (Parkrun) a few weeks ago to improve my stamina and lose some weight. The running cycle starts at 0900 every Saturday but I have to wear a full disposable nappy as I just have to “go” just before and during the run, despite emptying my bladder a number of times before the start. I have no actual incontinence. It`s as if the physical effort induces the urgency. I have also started wearing a full nappy when on longer journeys where toilets might not be available and for “peace of mind”. I`m scheduled to see a urologist next month but all the medical comment I`ve had so far has been very laid back and almost lacking in interest.
Any supporting comment you could offer would be most welcome. Thanks.
Do you find you have these urges randomly throughout the day or just during exercise? A lot of people leak only when the bladder is under pressure, such as when doing exercise.
Have you ever experienced leakage or is it always just an urge to go?
I would definitely recommend asking the Urologist to test whether it is weak pelvic floor muscles or another problem caused by your Prostate Cancer treatment.
Have you ever been recommended surgery such as a sling or artificial sphincter?
