**Severe Incontinence after second round prostate cancer tx**
An_253268 posted:
Father had initial cancer treatment a few years ago with a radical prostectomy. Then about two years ago his PSA went back up and started radiation again to the same area. He now had residual issues with his bladder of severe incontinence. He is only able to keep control of 1/4 of his own bladder. It controls his life,he is only in his early 70's. He has tried the bladder training and neuromuscular electrical simulator for the entire regime and has not shown any success. He as of last week started botox tx. Are we on the right track? This is in the Portland, Maine area. As an ICU nurse in the Tampa Area i am a distance away and want to make sure i can lead them in any possible direction of leading a quality life. They have put off relocating her with us because of this and if I can even possibly find a MD locally here that would be fabulous. Anyone with any information for me would be great. Or even the type of specialist he should be seeing. He sees a specialist of a Urogynocologist. Thanks so much.
