Here is my original query:
4 months ago, I underwent a radical prostatectomy. The 3 month post-op check showed that the results were the best they could be and my consultant said I did not need to see him for another year.By that stage, I also had the problem of incontinence effectively under control apart from the occasional dribble. I had several sessions with a physiotherapist who was satisfied that I was performing pelvic floor exercises correctly and I have continued to carry these out.However, during the last week or so, the incontinence has returned with a vengeance. I am now wetting the bed during the night whereas even when I first had the catheter removed, I always woke up and was able to get to the toilet. I am also freely leaking when sitting in the car - a problem which I have not had for a long time. I have had some discomfort and soreness and, on one occasion, a slight pink colour on toilet tissue - but otherwise urine is clear.I have seen my GP who has confirmed there is no infection. I need to understand why my condition has deteriorated.
