Less than 12 Months

If you have had surgery (radical prostatectomy) you will probably have experienced bladder leakage. This usually improves over time, although it may take several weeks/months during which time you will need products to contain the leakage.

Surgery is not the only prostate cancer treatment with incontinence as a side effect. Radiotherapy and high frequency ultrasound can also cause bladder and / or bowel leakage and other symptoms.
