I am down to 1 pad a day....and really looking forward to zero a day.....but as with everything else when one finds out he has prostate cancer, I have learned patience.
One thing I notice is that during the morning and early afternoon, I seldom notice any leakage, even with mild "stress" such as coughing, sneezing and swinging a golf club.
However, later in the day and into the evening, I leak a little bit even without "stress". Still only one mildly soiled pad, but definitely different later in the day.
Assumption is that my body tires as the day goes along. Did anyone else have a similar experience?
I read here recently that walking and using an ellyptical machine helps, so I intend to start doing a lot of that this weekend....out of town now on a business trip.
