This is great info, and good to see that I'm not out of the norm. I'm 51 and an avid runner. I'm 7.5 weeks post-op (DaVinci surgery) and recently (last week) could start feeling my bladder getting "full" if I am sitting or laying down. When I stand up, I must press my hand against my pelvis all the way to the bathroom or there is no use going into the bathrrom. I am wearing the depends and a pad infront of that and it works very well. I am also working the Kegels to rehab the pelvic muscles. I think they're working because I can stop the stream several times now, when I do get to the bathroom, where I couldn't at all before. My doctor told me I may have to deal with this for 6 months. (Well, he actually said if it lasts for 6 months we have a problem to look into) As long as I see progress, it should be ok.
