I know it is easier said than done, but folks need to be patient.
I am 4 1/2 months past surgery and still require a fraction of a pad a day....about 1/2 pad the past couple of days because I am fighting allergies and coughing/sneezing quite often.
I had complications....a hernia...that set me back some...was fine while sitting and asleep after about 3 or 4 weeks.....but still dealing with 4 to 6 full pads a day for a while.
Once I got past my hernia surgery, I dropped to 2-3 pads a day, then to 1, where I have been for 6 weeks.
I HOPE to be completely dry soon, but all I can do is continue my kegels, keep a positive attitude, walk and do other light exercises often and hope for the best.
Good luck....hopefully things will begin to show more progress soon.
