I had my surgery at Florida Hospital in Orlando, but am also familiar with Shands in Gainsville.
You sound like I did post catheter removal - no leaks at night or while sitting but dripping during activity.
I didn't cease my activity but did watch my fluid intake. Also, I cut out the caffeine for a few weeks. I just wore a pad and let the drip go on, especially on my walks. Eventually the dripping slowly decreased until it stopped altogether. I still remember the day when the leaking stopped altogether. I spent an hour cutting the grass and just about
leaped for joy when I saw that I hadn't leaked a drop. I felt that the walking, doing 75 sets of walking up and down the stairs in our house, and Kegeling, strengthened the pelvic floor muscles and helped me regain total continence.
Good luck, you sound like you'll be just fine.
