We will welcome you to the clinic and discuss your condition, concerns, and general health. Please bring any relevant investigations such as hospital discharge summaries, bladder/bowel diaries, ultrasound scans, etc. These will be reviewed by the physiotherapist. You may be given a bladder and/or bowel diary to complete for further analysis by the physiotherapist. The physiotherapist may use the ultrasound machine to check your pelvic floor muscles (the scanner is placed on the lower abdomen). At times it may be recommended to do an internal pelvic floor exam, however if you do not wish to have this examination performed that is ok, just let us know.
Did you know?
1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime.
The diagnosis of cancer can be difficult enough without the challenge of incontinence after surgery. The prevalence of urinary incontinence after prostate surgery is significant, however pelvic floor muscle training guided by a physiotherapist has been shown to facilitate a quicker recovery and reduces time to regain bladder control after surgery.
If you have a Men's Health issue, please request Margie or Marita for your consultation. Often only one or two visits are required to make a big difference.
You do not need a referral to see our Men's Health physiotherapists.
We will liaise with your doctor (GP or urologist) when necessary.
