    Post Prostate Removal Side Affects

    I am 65 and had my prostate removed 7 months ago.Continence and sexual function have not returned. While I thought sexual function would be important, it plays second to incontinence. I have done my kegels religiously. I have gone the biofeedback route with little success. I am now taking Myrbetriq and doing kegels. For relief I now wear a clamp during the day, releasing it frequently throughout the day. Laying down and sitting are not too bad but standing, walking or otherwise doing any activity is not good. At night I typically get up at midnight, 2 AM, 4 AM and 7 AM. Lately, I have had nights where I go midnight, 3 AM, and 7 AM. One pad will last all night. Sitting, I don't leak much as long as I go when the urge hits. Standing or walking, forget about it. When I wear the clamp, I still leak when I sit, bend over, or otherwise put additional pressure on my bladder. The leak is a quick spurt but enough to let me know how much pressure is really there. My doctor tells me to be patient but my gut tells me I am destined for another operation to install a mechanical clamp. Any similar experience out there? Any ideas on how I might proceed? Questions I could ask?
