hi snowbird, you need to tell us what were you diagnosed with during your last admission. There can be multiple causes for fluid retention, like heart disease, liver disease, low blood proteins, kidney disease, thyroid problems etc. most are treatable with allopathic medications. your incontinence may or may not be related to your fluid retention. It may also be due to diuretics that you may be taking to reduce body fluids. Kindly send some more details like your age/gender/previous diagnosis/other medical illnesses and so on. From the information available, I think you need to see a physician. If your incontinence persists, also get checked by a urologist. take care
