RFP, I know how you feel but you are only about 6 months out. It can take up to a year for your body to adjust. I had a total of 4 collagen injection and never got more than a few days of relief. But, I was also leaking at a rate of 8 + full pads a day. If it were me I would look for a physical therapist that does pelvic floor bio-feedback training. They can make sure you are working the right muscles and tell if you are getting stronger. If you want any details of what is done during the injections check out the links on my signature.
