Hey Gene, I had RRp on Oct 17th. Have had alot of leaking since then. check out my Journey a couple of pages back "kw's journey"
Did your Doc run a scope on you to see what was going on in your bladder? This would show him what the sphincter is doing.
I did the 30 skin test and all was ok. When my Dr. liked what he saw on the scope. He did not want to do the collegen injections. He wanted me to keep doing the kegals to see if it get's better. He was afrade to mess with the sphincter.
They will do the scope to do the injection, so if it all looks good he may not need to do the collegen.
My Dr. did start me on Detrol yesterday to see if that will take care of it.....
Just hang in there cause your not alone.....
