Hi Researcher: Looks like you and I may have had surgery the same day. I hope all on this board are recovering well.
Regarding incontinence-- good days/bad days, I was asking myself that same question when I found this forum today. It seems that's what's happened to me. Things were heading in the right direction, but since yesterday, I've been dripping like a faucet. Like member, "two-of-us," my problem is when I'm vertical. I'm dry through the night or when in the recliner, but once I'm up and around, I start leaking. I've talked to two guys who pretty-much overcame the incontinence right away, only having to buy one package of pads. Not so here, I'm also changing them quite a bit.
I'm wondering if my increased incontinence over the past two days is coincidental to my beginning to mentally and physically stimulate myself to get blood flowing into the penis? Unbelievably, I got about a 90-percent erection yesterday, without Viagra or anything. It was a welcome shocker, but I've got to wonder if it caused the increased leaking.
Anyway, I'm thrilled to have found this site and look forward to learning and sharing with my fellow PC survivors.
