I see that kegels are being discussed in a separate thread.
I've always felt that I had been unintentionally doing kegels for a couple of years before diagnosis and surgery. I had such terrible urinary urgency that I spent a lot of time every day struggling to hold my urine until I could reach a restroom. I was, essentially, doing kegels many times per day, every day.
Maybe that's why I didn't have much problem with incontinence after surgery. Now, 9 months after surgery, I don't even think about kegels anymore, although I did them after surgery until fully continent.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Is the urinary urgency that caused me panic at every highway rest stop...fear that the men's room would be occupied and that I wouldn't be able to hold it....common to most of us? If so, don't you think we were kegeling without even being aware of it?
