Post-Pelvic Surgery Rehabilitation in Winnipeg

Post-Pelvic Surgery Rehabilitation is crucial for individuals who’ve undergone surgical procedures in the pelvic region. Such surgeries, while addressing specific health concerns, can sometimes lead to complications like pain, urinary issues, or sexual dysfunction. Proper rehabilitation can pave the way for faster recovery and improved functionality.

At the core of this rehabilitation is a regimen that focuses on strengthening the pelvic muscles and improving overall pelvic health. This might involve a combination of physical therapy, exercises, and other therapeutic approaches tailored to individual needs.

To break it down: After pelvic surgery, your body may need some help to get back to its normal rhythm. A structured rehabilitation program ensures that this transition is smooth, reducing complications and enhancing quality of life.

At Men’s Health Clinic Manitoba, we offer specialized Post-Pelvic Surgery Rehabilitation services in Winnipeg, ensuring you receive the best care and support on your journey to recovery.

Frequently asked questions about Post-Pelvic Surgery Rehabilitation.

A dedicated rehabilitation plan is important in ensuring a good long-term outcome. However, we understand that it can feel like a burden having just underwent major surgery.

Our goal is to provide you the tools and support to get you back to where you want to be.

It is very common to have problems with your erections and ability to control your urination following prostate cancer surgery or major pelvic surgery. Return of erectile function can take up to 2 years, with urinary control taking up to 1 year.

It is common for men who have undergone prostate cancer surgery to report reduced penile length. Our rehabilitation program focuses on not only return of erectile function but also offers traction therapy to try and regain what was lost.

Erectile Dysfunction is extremely common after major pelvic surgery and even if you had normal erections before surgery, it is common to have insufficient erections for sexual activity after surgery and even the loss of length. Some of this function returns over time, but many men may need additional support to regain adequate erections. Early treatment involves the use of oral medication (i.e. Viagra) or injections to the penis for rehabilitation and also allow you to be sexually active again.

Incontinence can occur for a few reasons. Commonly, the sphincter muscle that keeps urine from leaking out, becomes weakened after surgery, resulting in incontinence. Over time some of the strength can be regained, but often men derive benefit from pelvic floor physiotherapy to expedite their recovery. In men with persistent severe incontinence, an artificial urinary sphincter can be inserted to regain control. In men who have lost the sensation in their bladder, making it difficult to pee, advanced bladder function testing can be performed (urodynamics) to assess for any residual function. 

Although it can take up to a year to regain function of your sphincter, in some men who have significant leakage after a few months may benefit from early treatment.
