Thanks for your response Clayton, it’s very reassuring.
I’m pleased to report that already I’m starting to see an improvement and can feel that my bladder can hold a little more each day, the urgency to go is lasting a little longer and I am starting to regain some control over the starting and stopping of the flow (which was the thing I was most worried about – particularly starting). It’s no where near what it was, but I can see it improving every day and still early days.
A couple of things I read that I think are really helping
Drinking little and often so that the bladder doesn’t go from having to deal with no capacity to a large capacity too quickly and increasing the volume over time.
Stopping and starting mid flow to help exercise that sphincter muscle, although a little uncomfortable, does seem to be building up my ability to control the flow.
