Just an idea that seemed to work for me. I wanted to use our hottub spa and couldn't because of the leakage issue, so I tried putting on a condom under my suit and it worked. I am not experiencing a lot of leaking but what I did leak collected in the condom and didn't come out until I took it off. This sounds kind of strange as I type it (glad this site is anonymous) but it worked for me. Figured I would share, maybe one of you guys want to get in a hottub.

Hi Sam,
Great idea.  I used one of my constriction rings when I used my hot tub right after surgery.  Never thought about the condom.  A lot better idea.  I'm sure there are guys here that can use that piece of valuable info.  At 11 months out I'm good for about 45 mins to an hour if I hold back on the liquids.

Hey Sam,

I hear ya,  I am 9 months post op and still leaking just a little bit.  I use a restricter ring and condom at other times of intimacy if you know what I mean.  Grape, strawberry, cherry. A creative way to add to you and your partners menu when you're ready.
