Yes, you can have metoidioplasty if you have a history of urinary incontinence. However, it is important to talk to your doctor about your individual circumstances. Urinary incontinence is a condition in which urine leaks involuntarily. This can be caused by a number of factors, including childbirth, surgery, and certain medical conditions.

If you have urinary incontinence, your doctor will need to assess the severity of your condition before recommending metoidioplasty. They will also need to make sure that you are taking medication to control your incontinence.

In some cases, urinary incontinence can make metoidioplasty more difficult or risky. For example, if you have severe incontinence, your doctor may need to take extra care during surgery to avoid damaging your bladder or urethra.

However, for most people with urinary incontinence, metoidioplasty is a safe and effective procedure. If you are considering metoidioplasty, talk to your doctor about your individual circumstances and risks.

Here are some additional things to consider if you have urinary incontinence and are considering metoidioplasty:

  • You may need to have a urethroplasty before metoidioplasty. This is a procedure to repair the urethra, which is the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body.
  • You may need to continue taking medication to control your incontinence after surgery.
  • You may experience some pain or discomfort during the first few weeks after surgery.
  • There is a small risk of complications, such as infection or bleeding.

If you have any concerns about metoidioplasty and urinary incontinence, please be sure to talk to your doctor.

Having a history of urinary incontinence does not necessarily rule out the possibility of undergoing metoidioplasty. However, it is important to discuss your medical history, including the details of your urinary incontinence, with your surgeon during the pre-operative consultations.

Metoidioplasty involves the creation of a neophallus using existing genital tissue. The surgical technique aims to enhance the appearance and functionality of the genital region. However, it is important to note that the surgery itself may not directly address or resolve issues related to urinary incontinence.

If you have a history of urinary incontinence, your surgeon will evaluate the cause, severity, and potential impact on the surgical outcome. They may recommend additional treatments or interventions to manage or improve urinary continence before or after the metoidioplasty procedure.

It’s crucial to have an open and thorough discussion with your surgeon to fully understand the potential implications and to ensure that your individual needs and concerns are addressed throughout the surgical process. They will be able to provide you with specific recommendations and personalized advice based on your medical history and their expertise.
