Pelvic muscle rehabilitation in males following prostatectomy.
Post-prostatectomy incontinence (PPI) is a common problem in the era of increased detection of prostate cancer and use of radical prostatectomy. Whether temporary or permanent, mild or more severe, PPI can be effectively treated and improved by pelvic muscle rehabilitation. It is important for urologic nurses to understand the various pelvic muscle rehabilitation methods--for example, Kegel exercises, biofeedback, and electrical stimulation--to better educate and care for PPI patients and their families.
