HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

I am sorry for your loss.

The urinary incontinence you are presently experiencing is likely related to weakness of the pelvic muscle but you may want to visit your doctor for an evaluation to make sure that there are no other contributing causes.
Pelvic muscle exercises/pelvic floor muscle training is commonly used to treat this condition and has been shown to be effective. These exercises are called Kegel exercises.
They involve the following: (1) squeeze the muscles in your pelvis as though you are trying to stop urine flow. You should not use the muscles in your buttocks or abdomen to achieve this

(2)Hold for 3 to 5 seconds then relax for a few seconds

(3) Do at least 10 of these each session and do at least 3 to 4 sesssions a day if possible

I hope this helps
