Had prostrate surgery and radition three years ago I now suffer from severe incontence will acpunture help in this area - Carl
I think acupuncture is your best bet, but the surgery and radiation has done a great deal of damage and imagine you would need to give this a few months of care. To be honest, i have not seen many people with the problem.
I'd be happy to have you come in for a FREE consultation to discuss what options are available to you.

Thanks for reaching out. Your question is difficult to answer with just the information i have. Without knowing directly why you are experiencing incontinence i do not know if acupuncture will be beneficial. I do not know your location but if you are in my area i would love to sit down and have a free consult with you concerning your surgery and all complications involved. Acupuncture may be beneficial but I will need quite a bit more information. You are welcome to call at any time and schedule a consult. I hope i will be able to help you.
