At 6 wks out of LRP I'm still using several pads a day, mostly in the afternoon. But I have found a solution. Every afternoon I take my 3 and 8 year old daughters to the beach! I duck into the bath house, take off the pad. I return and wade into the water waist deep. For the next several hours I sit at the waters edge pad free. Who cares if I leak and who knows that I do!
I'm glad I didn't have this surgery in the winter, here in NY it's mighty cold at the beach in January!

It sounds like you have found a way to deal with it.

Best wishes for a successful outcome.  Keep healing!
