Yes, I agree, 40 years old with no family history is a bit unusual in my opinion. However, I'm very surprised that you were diagnosed a G7 from a mere blood test. That confuses me but I've been told that I'm easily confused. Regarding "leakage", my urologist told me that, while there are those who claim an unexplained miracle and are dry immediately after surgery, some patients don't recover from incontinence for 18 months. You must remember that nothing you read on this forum is proven truth. The posts here can be misleading at times. Maybe wishful thinking? Tends to discourage those of us who are having a more normal recovery. In my experience, I have found that an aggressive kegel exercise routine did not help me. I found that I was much better in the early weeks and months post-op if I moderated my kegel exercise routine. I found that as my muscles down below got tired, I leaked more. So, after about
2 months I stopped doing kegels regularly and only remembered to practice doing them during the urination process. Stopping and starting the flow at will. At this point in time, in my view, if I were you I'd be more concerned about
healing from the surgery. My home nurse visited 2 times per week for a month and she told me that in the first 30 days after my surgery I should try to force drinking fluids and try to urinate as much as possible. She told me that after having a recent prostate surgery, frequent urination helps ward off infection by keeping the urethra flushed out regularly. She told me, above all, not to dwell so much on ED or incontinence issues until after 30 days post-op. That's merely my experience and my non-professional opinion. I'm sure others will share their experience with you and probably tell me I'm all wet. Best wishes!
