Is it possible for a 15 year old to get OAB after a surgery?
(So far, I'm wearing Depends at night, I'm a heavy sleeper)

I'm not sure what OAB is... loss of bowel control? Depending on what kind of surgery you had, this may be a symptom. Any sort of bowel or hemmroid/rectum surgery can ptentially cause this. Also, a very long surgery (many hours) can cause problems with control of the bowels and/or bladder afterwards because of all the drugs they use to put you under. But in all cases, this should be very temporary. After a non-bowel surgery, I would think you should be back to normal in a few days to a week at the most. If a bowel surgery, then maybe more than a week, but...

...you definitely need to tell your parents so they can report it/take you to the doctor. This shouldn't be happening if you had a simple day surgery that wasn't on your bowels. And even if it was on your bowels, more than a week to get straightened back out may indicate that something didn't go right or isn't healing up right and you need to confirm with your doctor that such a problem is normal and find out when you can expect it to go away.

I've had two day surgeries and have never had a problem with controlling my bowels and have never heard of it listed as a possible side affect, so you definitely need to get checked ou.
