Had RALP about 7 weeks ago. I know that is not a long time but I'm curious as to what others have experienced. How long did it take for the soreness to go away in testicular, perineum & rectum area? I'm hoping that once the soreness goes away I'll have a better chance with gaining some continence.
I can sit for long periods (pretty good while sleeping as well) without virtually any leakage although I never have a sense of a full bladder as i did prior to surgery the moment i stand up there is this great pressure i cannot control without "pinching" (not a great look especially when away from home) till i can make it to a toilet or i have to deal with a gusher in my diaper.
I can, at any time, stop my stream (the external urethral sphincter) but leak incessantly anytime while standing. Does this mean that my internal urethral sphincter was damaged or just is not working? The muscle used in Kegels (to stop flow) evidently is not the one i need to find and strengthen.
Tring to clear my head with some hope that this will get better as i feel so house bound with the 2-3 diaper changes everyday along with maybe 10-12 pads or paper towels!
Thank you in advance for your comments
