An elderly diabetic man with a 67 g prostate developed a moderate degree of stress urinary incontinence along with urge urinary incontinence after transurethral resection of the prostate. Initially, he did not perform the recommended pelvic floor exercise and wrapped a rubber band around his penis to control the problem. He presented with late development of penile gangrene requiring partial amputation of his penis. The stress urinary incontinence subsided on subsequent follow-up. The patient is now doing well.
