I had a prostatectomy 40 months ago, and 18 months ago Proton Radiation at UFPTI . I have just developed incontinence, mainly uncontrollable dripping in the afternoon. My Urologist thinks it is from the radiation treatments. Has anyone else had to deal with this after a long period since surgery and/or radiation? I haven't found any way so far to deal with this problem except to wear pads. It is sure messing up my golf game. Any help and advice would be appreciated.
