Non-surgical treatments

After undergoing radical prostatectomy surgery, many men suffer from transient incontinence, which will disappear after a few months.
Conservative methods for treating incontinence include:

  • Pelvic floor muscle exercises
  • Electrostimulation
  • Bladder training
  • Changing the drinking regime (reducing the amount of fluids, avoiding substances like coffee that can irritate the bladder)

If incontinence does not disappear within the first year after prostatectomy, your doctor may prescribe surgical treatment.

Surgical treatments

  • Bulking agents
  • Implants

The implants are based on the same principle: they prevent or reduce involuntary loss of urine by compressing the urethra.
