Most Absorbent Incontinence Products For Men Following Prostate Surgery

Incontinence following prostate surgery is a common medical condition.
Prostate surgery is a common surgery performed in the US with a 92% success rate. While that sounds amazing, one of the common side effects of the surgery is urinary incontinence (UI). Not all doctors mention to their male patients that they may experience incontinence following prostate surgery. Although somewhat embarrassing, incontinence following prostate surgery is a common medical condition, and usually treatable. Discuss treatment options with your doctor, and use absorbent incontinence products to manage the effects.

Depending on the level of incontinence experienced after surgery you may need to begin with something more absorbent and then taper down.  Most men find that after only 18 months they have regained total continence.  However, until they reach that point, they begin with wearing a pull on underwear, and taper down to a guard or shield. Consider belted undergarments when you need more absorbency.
