I had my catheter removed yesterday following robotic surgery?I changed my pull-ups every two hours for probably eight hours and they were saturated.I never had the urge to urinate but the urine seemed to flow out.Today(twenty hours after removal) I am urinating some on my own but everytime I get up from a sitting position I start to urinate sometimes I make it to the bathroom and sometimes I don't.I would like to know if anybody has had similar experiences after robotic surgery and what I should expect from here on out.,
My husband had a RP 11 weeks ago, and only 2 weeks ago his leakage slowed down dramatically. He now only uses 1 pad a day, and is now confident that he won't have any more accidents. You could be different, and stop quickly, or go on for 6 weeks, or 12 weeks. Everyone is different. Go in to the forums and you will find a few of us have posted comments about leakage. My husband started sport again this week. Today he goes out for his first game of golf. A miracle!!!! Just be patient. I might add that he went to an incontinent physio last week. Just be aware when you get up from a chair. Practice your Kegel exercises. Good luck. Not a pleasant operation is it.
