From my experience, this is all part of re-gaining overall urinary function control. It is frustrating, but will get better.
General control can get better as you strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. Like many of us, you will need to learn how gain control all over again and it will be different than before surgery.
I tried doing the Kegel exercises on my own with some success, but not enough. Finally, I obtained a referral to a trained physical therapist associated with a local hospital who used bio-feedback to re-train the pelvic floor properly. The program takes several weeks, but it is well worth it.
After you regain basic control, there are several remedies for the problem you just posted about. One of several pharmaceutical drugs can help. A specific drug is named "Vesicare" that has helped many. Yet, there are several others. An experienced urologist should know about these options.
I hope this helps!
