Loss of Control of Urine in Men
It's important to know if you've had recent surgery, since men can lose bladder control if the bladder, prostate or other part of the urinary tract is damaged during a medical procedure. Radiation therapy can have the same effect.
Have you had recent surgery or a medical procedure that involves the urinary tract? Examples include
prostate surgery such as radical prostatectomy or transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP, "roto-rooter" for enlarged prostate)
radiation treatment or radioactive seeds (for prostate cancer).
