The side effects of Zolodex I can't attest to, but the rest of your issues sound pretty normal. I would say within 30 to 60 days you most likely will get your incontinence under better cntrol, and thhings will return to "normal" somewhat.
It took me 8 months to get off the pads. Kegals are an important part of getting bladder control, along with walking, and some say limiting caffeine, wine, and some acidic fruit juices.
There should be no reason you will end up on a catheter in a few years unless you have severe bladder neck problems, which we have a few giys dealing with now. Overall the incidence is fairly rare, and a high percentage of men regain full control of their bladder.
The ED is another issue that will remani to be seen.
