Post Prostatectomy Incontinence

Patient : I had a radical prostatectomy on June 20 2008. Progressed from 10-12 pads a day after surgery to 1 or 2 pads per day this past summer (2011). Incontinence appears to be worsening over past month or so. Using 2 to 3 pads per day. Had been doing Kegals for 18 months then tried stopping urine flow with limited success. Still trying to stop urine flow. What could cause this continued incontinence and what treatments might work? Never had incontinence prior to surgery Thankyou
