Will I Become Incontinent After A Radical Prostatectomy?

Question: Will I become incontinent after a radical prostatectomy?

Answer: When the prostate is completely removed, the bladder has to be reconnected to the urethra and in doing so, the sphincter that controls urinary control has to be preserved. Again in the hands of a very experienced surgeon, the likelihood that someone would have a significant problem with urinary control, that is wearing some kind of protection and changing it more than once a day, a year or so later, should be no more than two percent.
