Advise against: I would strongly urge you not to take anti-anxiety meds unless your symptoms have become unbearable or are affecting your ability to work and function. These medications do have some negative effects on the baby's development. Try yoga and other relaxatioin techniques.

Any new techniques for control of urinary incontinence following radical prostatectomy?

Surgery: If one develops severe urianry incontinence after radical surgery and has failed conservative management and medications, then surgery is the next option. This includes collagen injection to help close the bladder opening or placement a sling underneath the urethra. A fianl measure would be to place an artificial (plastic) sphincter to close the urethral while not urinating.
