It's been about 2 weeks since my catheter removal. Since day 1, I've been continent while lying down or sitting. Where I'm not seeing any progress is while standing/walking. Here's the scenario:
When I wake up in the morning or have been sitting for a while, I have no problems making it to the bathroom (if I go immediately there) and emptying my bladder. If I instead walk around for 5-10 minutes, I begin to leak and will continue to leak until my bladder empties. On a regular work day (I have a desk job and don't move around much), I go through 2 pads/day. On a weekend, I'm more active (various social events involving a lot of standing and walking) and may go through 3-4 pads/day.
I've been following my surgeons kegel regimen to a "T", with an emphasis on kegeling while in the standing or while walking. I also kegeled for 2 weeks before surgery. I don't believe that I'm over or underdoing it.
I know things will improve for me but my question is, what is going to change to improve my situation? Is there something else that I could be doing proactively, to get there faster? Or do I just need more patience?
Thanks in advance!
