Post Kidney Stone Incontinence

I had a large kidney stone in my bladder removed Friday 10/5/12. Sunday morning 10/7/12 when getting out of bed, I had some urine leak out. Is this common and will it correct itself? Thanks for any input.

I'm going to assume that it was removed via a cystoscope. In that case, it's likely that the scope and the stone (on the way out) slightly distended the urinary sphincter muscles, and that might correct itself after a short while.

Still, I'd report this to the doc that did the stone removal, just to get his opinion: it's not impossible to 'tear' those small muscles. Depending on what is actually going on, it might take a lot more time, or it might require intervention to correct it.
