Have continuous discharge. Had surgery for endometrial cancer. Is this a common problem in women?

I had surgery for endometrial cancer about 9 months ago... then radiation therapy. I have a full hysterectomy. I have a continuing discharge... I believe its just lack of bladder control. I am using a pad daily to take care of the problem. Considering the total hysterectomy, I would imagine that many women have a similar problem... Is this to be expected? By the way, my surgery was a laparatomy (sp?) ... 4 small incisions. Thank you for your time and consideration of my inquiry. My email address is YYYY@YYYY

Since you had a laparotomy, it is unlikely that you suffered and trauma that is causing you to have continuous discharge of urine. What you can do is to check if the discharge is from the bladder or the vagina. If it is from the bladder, What it means is probably incontinence and a neurological issue.

If it is from the vagina, it means it is some fistula or connection between the vagina and bladder causing the problem. After this, consult a gynecologist for treatment. HOpe this helps.
