Physical injury caused by surgery may result in a too strong and permanent contraction of pelvic floor muscles and pressure on nerves.In consequence, the sphincter-bladder system will not work properly.This is why patients who had their prostate surgically removed (prostatectomy) need therapy to reduce tension more often than to increase it. Accordingly, Kegel exercises have little effect in this group.
