No problems with incontinence here - at least so far - after three c-sections. But, I have almost no sensation in my bladder right now. The only way I know when I have to use the bathroom is that my incision will start to hurt from the pressure. So, I can well believe the surgery and/or the pregnancy itself can cause problems in this area.
And, I've always been a Kegel queen, so no problem there. I discovered them when I was 17, and have done them regularly ever since.
