Dittos to all the above, Sparkymo. You'll have times where you feel like you have to urinate very frequently during the day and you'll find that certain movements create spurts in your pads. We all go through this. Things will get better with time and repetition of the twists, bends etc. that cause the urine to let loose. Take it easy and be patient. This is a surgery (I'm assuming you had surgery?) that requires internal healing as well-- and that takes TIME. In fact, when your internal swelling goes down (within about
four weeks post-op) you may backslide a bit in terms of regaining full continence, but that is normal too.
So, the recovery process can be full of surprises, but after about
six to eight weeks you should be back to your old self.
Best to ya!
