Leakage After Prostate surgery

Leakage after a Radical Robotic Surgery. I am five and a half weeks out from my surgery. I had to have a catheter longer than usual. I've had it out now for three days. If I lay down and get back up I can go to the bathroom without leaking, but if when I get up from sitting position I feel the warm leak every time. I do have a pocket that was first believed to be a pocket of urine in my pelvic area. Recently I was told they now believe it is a hemotoma. I just am trying to figure out what would make the difference if I get up from laying to getting up from sitting?

Thank you for asking

posture changes change the intra abdominal pressures and result in leakage. it needs a little pelvic physiotherapy and assessment of the incontinence. Hematoma also needs to be addressed and decide whether to manage conservatively or to be drained.

Stay in touch with your urologist and lets hope everything comes up to be normal.

Take care
