is there support for people suffering urinary incontinence after prostate surgery?

Yes: Male slings have been shown to be of great assistance in helping men with certain types of incontinence after prostate surgery. I suggest you talk to the urologist who performed the prostatectomy or find one of the younger robotic trained urologists who might be more aware of new technology to help with incontinence after prostatectomy.

Kegel exercises: Kegel exercises build up the pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor muscles can put pressure on the urethra and help with incontinence.
