The operation was 3 days ago no anaesthetic but the area was numb. Is this enough to cause incontinence lasting this long. Thank you
I’m no medical expert but 3 days would be pretty quick for everything to get back to normal after surgery or medical procedure, particularly for an older person.
Incontinence can be a short or medium-term side effect of a number of things, even healthy young women sometimes end up in nappies for a number of weeks after giving birth, for example, according to some accounts I’ve seen.
Doctors are the best people to ask anyway, in terms of whether someone is recovering as expected.
