Is the internal sphincter hypertonicity the more common problem (than the external  u s) in bladder sphincter dissynergy ?  Ie urinary hesitation ?

Inner sphincter: The term 'overactive bladder' is used to describe dis synergy of the bladder muscle -not contracting in coordinated fashion; this leads to loss of regularity and coordinated, controlled urination. The inner sphincter is controlled by the autonomic nervous system and is involuntary. The outer sphincter is part of the voluntary nervous system, and we can control it (the basis of kegel exercises). ...Read more

Nutritional advice: You already have a urologist. If you want to correct the cause, you must try a new diet.

The movie, "forks over knives", rentable on netflix etc; &/or websites like : drmcdougall.Com will give you lots of information. The bladder is related to your diabetes most likely.

Doing the Kegel exercises to strengthen the bladder sphincter muscle after Prostate surgery, how long should it take until urinary incontinence stops?

Doing the Kegel exercises to strengthen the bladder sphincter muscle after Prostate surgery, how long should it take until urinary incontinence stops?

Here are some...: Kegel exercise may help regain the strength & function of urinary sphincter but not the sole factor for restoring it; age, health, and resultant scar & injury to the sphincter together play an important role in the post-op u-incontinence. So, seek professional evaluation and counseling timely for individual details timely. ...Read more
