    My husband had a radical prostatectomy on Aug 2, 2012.  Today is 8/24.  His incision is leaking through 6 layers of gauge and a Kotex pad.  This dressing needs to be changed 3 times a day.  Is this normal?

    That is an excessive amount 3 wseks after a radical prostatectomy. The leakage could be either urine leakage from teh bladdder or possibly lymphatic drainage. You should be in touch with your Urologist immediately.
