I am right there along side you on the Post-RP journey (at 122 days post surgery now).
Been going pad free for a week -- mostly was just not wanting to give up the security of the pads for the last month or more even tho they were always dry at end of the work day.
all that is left is some drips in the later evening when muscles are getting tired and I am exercising while standing.
I don't really do much kegels -- but do a LOT of running in place and walking (up 15-20000 steps a day). I suppose that is some form of exercise for the pelvic floor muscles.
Will let u know when the last drops are gone.
