Prostate Exercises for FASTEST RECOVERY

Prostate exercises – Are you worried about your bladder  control after prostate removal surgery? Unfortunately, up to 80% of men suffer  from bladder leakage after this surgery. But the really good news is that the  exercise I’m about to show you can help you quickly overcome bladder leakage  and get back to your normal life. Hi, I’m Michelle, and today I’m guiding you  through pelvic floor muscle training to help you prepare and recover your bladder control fast  after going through a radical prostatectomy.

Now, please feel welcome to let me know in the  comments below if you have questions or comments about this training, or you might like  to share this video with someone that you know who’s undergoing this type of surgery. Now,  recent research has shown that these exercises work much faster than traditional pelvic floor  training after prostatectomy. Until recently, pelvic floor training for men  has been based on exercises for bladder leakage actually for women.

Now,  this current research found that men who used a new pelvic floor training regime and  this is a regime designed for men, actually, and these men started their training before  surgery, these guys regained their bladder control significantly faster than the men who  did the traditional pelvic floor exercises. Now today, I’m going to share  this new training method with you to help you stop later leakage fast and this  is regardless of the type of prostatectomy surgery that you have.

Now we’re going to  go through this training really thoroughly. We’re gonna cover when to start preparing the  best trained positions to use, and the most effective technique to use as well. Then finally,  we’ll cover how many exercises you need to do before I just share three little helpful tips  to make your bladder control training exercises more effective. Now, first question is when  to start preparing for prostate exercises? Well, according to the research that I’ve mentioned already.

Try to  start these preparation exercises around five weeks prior to surgery if you can. But I’m going  to add to that, even if you only have a week or two before your operation. It’s really worth  starting these exercises now. And this is why you can still feel your pelvic floor muscles working  rather than waiting until after your operation when the exercises are just going to be more  difficult to feel. So start as soon as you can. The three best training positions are as  follows.

If you’re able to do the exercises, do them lying down and standing and sitting as  well. So you’re going to use all three positions during the course of the day. If you can’t do your  exercises, sitting or standing, start with the line put down position, and then progressed your  training to upright positions when you’re able to. Let’s now talk about the most effective  exercise technique to use the pelvic floor exercise technique that you use to  prepare is really vital for your success.

If you want more information, you  can also check out my beginner’s Kegel exercises linked above. But I’m going  to go through this now with you as well. Now these preparation exercises are for the pelvic  floor muscles located in this area of your body. These muscles wrap around the base of the penis  and a little deeper in around the tube the urine tube that carries urine out of your body. The  correct technique for exercising these muscles is to stop the flow of urine and shorten the  penis while continuing to breathe.

Now that might sound a little challenging at first, let’s break  down that technique to make it easier for you. I’d like you to start doing this exercise  gently. When you’re starting out. Try to get your technique correct before doing  stronger exercises when you can manage them. Now, here’s the first part of the exercise.  Practice along with me if you’d like to at home, start by gently contracting your  muscles as if you’re trying to slow or stop the flow of urine and now  relax these muscles back to resting.

Next, I’d like you to try to gently shorten  your penis or retract it drawing it inwards towards your body. If you’re not sure about  this action, think about the way a turtle shortens its neck when it moves its head back  in towards its shell.

This is a small movement. Now you try gently try to shorten the penis  and try to keep breathing as you do so and now relax back to resting. How did you  go with that exercise is not always easy, and it can take a little practice before it starts  to feel more natural to take your time with these prostate exercises. Now finally, let’s put both actions  together to complete the whole exercise gently. I want you to stop the flow and shorten the penis while continuing to breathe and now relax.

Now, let’s talk about how many exercises you  need to do. Before your surgery your going to be practicing using a combination of quick  fast exercises, and long, slow exercises. The quick exercises are one second holes. Let’s  do that now together, contract for one and now relax. That’s your one second hole.

Now  let’s practice a long slow exercise, holding your muscles contracted and you can do this for up to  10 seconds while you’re breathe. Here’s your turn, try to stop the flow of urine, shorten the penis,  keep contracting for one and two, and keep holding gently if you can, keep breathing and holding,  and now relax. So that wasn’t quite 10 seconds, but you get the idea of doing the slow, long  prostate exercises.

When you start out doing your exercises, just do them gently and just for the  length of time that you can manage. Even if it’s just for a couple of seconds, you’re doing really  well. Now you’ll find that over with practice over time, and over the coming weeks, you’ll be able  to hold these contractions longer and stronger. So here’s your daily training  guide before your surgery, and I’ll also list this in the description below  for you to access this information as well. Now let’s talk briefly about training after  surgery and how many exercises you need to do. After surgery, most men recommends their exercises  after their catheter has been removed and not before.

Now, if you find that you’re leaking  urine with your prostate exercises after surgery, maybe start them lying down for the first two  to three weeks, and then gradually progress to sitting and standing exercises as you  can. After your operation just do the number of exercises you can manage and hold each  exercise up to 10 seconds for your longer holds and do your short ones as well. You may find  that the exercises aren’t as easy as they were before surgery.

But don’t worry, your ability  will usually return with practice over time. Well, you may notice your bladder control improves between two  and six weeks after your operation. And many men find that they almost dry with no better  leakage at all after three months of training after their surgery and this is what’s there  without regular pelvic floor muscle training. So finally, let’s go through the three important  bladder control tips that I mentioned at the outset of this video.

Tip number one is to limit  your caffeine intake to one server day and this includes coffee and tea. Unfortunately caffeine  irritates the bladder. It makes you want to empty your bladder more frequently and urgently and  it’s also a diuretic so it increases the bladder contents and makes the bladder fill up faster.  Number two is to reduce your alcohol intake as well and for the same reasons that I  basically already mentioned for coffee.

Three is to try to wait for at least two hour  intervals between emptying your bladder. So what this does is it helps to retrain how much  your bladder can actually store? And this is especially helpful after having a catheter for a  week. So we’ve gone through quite a lot, haven’t we? I really hope this information and prostate exercises helps you  understand how to prepare for your prostatectomy and improve your bladder control really fast  afterwards.

If you have questions or comments, please feel most welcome to post them below and  I’d really appreciate you liking this video if you found it helpful below too. Thanks so much  for watching today. I’ll see you next time.
