Most radical prostatectomy patients overcome incontinence in 12 to 16 weeks (a very few sooner and a very few never). At this point in your fight, I personally would walk a little more every day (yes, start now - with catheter) and drink a lot of water while the catheter is in to flush the system of anesthesia. This RP surgery really saps the strength for several months - I think even more than hip replacement (but not as painful....). Keep walking more and more and don't lift anything too heavy!
