Tiner is still needing your help.....
My Dad had surgery 10 weeks ago and this has been such an ordeal for our family. He used to get up 3-4 times a night before surgery, and now it is 4-5 times a night after the surgery. It was interesting to read that this is normal for some. He has gone back many times to the doctor and they gave him catheters to use himself to releave the pressure that was built up. Then after weeks of that and not leaving the house, he went back and for a routine appt. they rushed him into surgery to go back in and snip tissue so he could urinate without the help of the catheter. Now he wears diapers and he has NNNNOOOOO control. He has to sit on pads and won't leave the house. It has been weeks and my poor Mom is so upset. I called his doc and he said this is normal and he could give my Dad some bladder control pills. Has anyone taken these?
I think time will be the key, but he is sure getting run down waiting to not wear a diaper. Some people say he needs to get him mind off of this. I think he needs to do the kegel excersises for he will never learn how to control this. Any suggestions?
Thanks for helping the big Marine,
