Ehud and Wife
I had my catheter 14 days - When it came out I had no control for about
a month and then it started to improve - took over five months before I was basically padless and only had a few minnor stress leaks.
I too would have no control when I stood up if i sat too long. It was a matter of practice for me to get to learn when time sitting was just about
right. I found the kegels helped me and still do them even though RRP was in Dec 05. The radiation I had to have in 06 has made the continuation of the kegels important.
I hope that Ehud recovers quickly.
