You and I are near the same age and similar in time from RRP - I am 11 weeks post surgery today. I had no real problems with having to go during the night before surgery. Oh there were times if I drank a lot of pop or tea late that I would go twice, but most of the time one trip was necessary. Since surgery, I average 1 & 1/2 hours - or maybe 2 hours if I am lucky. It has been rough, and I have almost gotten to the point of sleep walking in the process.
I also continue to have some dribbling - using one (sometimes two) pads during the day. The pad at night is basically dry.
I am taking it from what others say that it will get better. RB
