Dito on the start at half days for 1 week and then maybe fulltime next week. I am in my third full time week and still get tired or sore when I stand a long time. Walking is no problem. Try and bring an extra cushion or donut the first week or two. You will go through more pads when standing or walking. When you get up from sitting you will need to make a practice to go to the bathroom to drain the bladder otherwise it will leak out and you will go through more pads.
Keeeeeep drinking even though your common sense says to stop. If your urine gets concentrated it can become irritating and you have pain. I know I did.
I never had an accident outside the pad at work or even close. I only leaked twice in my bed when my protective clothing got turned around like a pretzel. Yikes....
You will do great just take it easy.
Take care and good luck
