Abstract

A common complication of radical prostatectomy surgery is the sudden onset of urinary incontinence (UI), with most men experiencing at least transient post‐surgery UI [1]. Carrier et al.’s [1] recent meta‐synthesis of qualitative studies on men’s perceptions of the impact of physical symptoms post radical prostatectomy on their quality of life found that UI is a “significant problem for which men feel ill‐prepared” (p.13). In the post‐operative weeks, men must cope with the practicalities of effectively containing urine, whilst also dealing with the psychological burden of sudden onset incontinence which can cause a “second shock following the initial shock of the diagnosis” [2].
