I awakened twice one year ago today. The first time I had my prostate. The second time I didn't. Today, one year later, I go drip, drip, drip all the day long. I tried kegaling, tried, bio-feedback, tried everything else. Did my surgeon mis-handle my sphincter? He may have because another uro wrote in his notes after a cysto, "sphincter seems a little shorter than normal". Dr. Walse says if a surgeon is not careful, than can happen. Does my diabetes affect? Perhaps, maybe even probably.
I am now awaiting a visit with my present uro to see how quickly I can have something done surgically (preferably the male sling...kw you are in my prayers, especially on the 22nd).
