I suggest you speak with your doctor as it sounds like you have incontinence, but I'm not sure which type as I cannot tell from what you have described.

We never empty our bladder completely so I am not surprised you go some more after you have finished urinating. It may be helpful for you to do a 3-day diary and show it to your doctor when you see him.

You could also try some behavior modification .
