According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lifetime. Of those who have a radical prostectomy, up to 60% may experience urinary leakage and/or incontinence. The good news is, a specialized pelvic health physical therapist can help you to deal with these symptoms and improve your quality of life. In fact, physical therapy has been shown to have the greatest effects when delivered both before and after surgery, if that’s part of your treatment. Talk to your doctor about referring you to a specialized physical therapist.
