Incontinence after uterine ablation

Dear Ask The Doctor:
I had an uterine ablation done in December and every since then I have had a problem with incontinence. I never had a problem with this before, now I get up 2 or 3 times a night with an overwhelming urge to urinate sometimes when I get up to use it I have already wet my pants and it will have a strong ammonia smell. I've tried cutting out caffeine but it doesn't make a difference. I don't know what to do to get back to normal it has already been almost 8 months since the ablation and still the problem persists. What can I do?
