Well, You all know I have to put my two cents in here! For the last 16 years I have had jobs that required me to stand and walk all day. I push mow my yard. I try to walk when playing golf. Even if I ride I still get plenty of walking. All of this before surgery. After. I was walking at the mall for two hours a day almost every day. I did my kegeals. But, nothing has worked for me. Just one of the unlucky few. I personally believe you body will adjust how ever it is going too. That is if there is no obvious damage to the sphincter muscle. I too have been dry when sitting and sleeping for over a year now. I just leak when I get up and start moving around. If anyone could ever predict and cure the continence by any other means than "artificial plumbing" they would make Bill Gates look like he makes chump change!
Wishing you Luck,
