open surgery (2/14/06) and radiation therapy (6/05/06 thru 7/25/06) I am one of the lucky ones. For about
6-weeks after surgery, I experienced mild daytime incontinence. Nothing after radiation therapy. I have read heartbreaking incontinence accoutings on this site.
I seem to have a different problem...bedwetting about 2- 3 times a week while sleeping. I mentioned this to my urologist and he said this was not called incontinence. I forgot to ask the doc what it was called and how I can control it. Very embarassing.
I did some research and all I could come up with was nocturia which is night-time frequency.
I would like to ask if anyone else has this bedwetting while sleeping? Also, does it have a name? I try to control it by drinking very small amounts of fluids at night. I also continue Kegel exercises. Does anyone else have this problem? Or know anything about it? I know this was embarassing to write...must be same way to answer. Thanks.
Thanks for your help,
