Hi Doc, I promised my doctor I'd do my kegels and everytime my wife asked, you could set your watch on the hour, every hour, I assured he I was kegeling up a storm.
I lied. I was convinced I'd get dry some day in the future, and kegel or no kegel, the date would be about
I'm not quite 90 days since the catheter came out and I'm at one pad for 24 hours and every week is better than the last.
I'd suggest you take a nice diazapam, or three or four, and put contenance on the 'don't worry about
it' shelf for a few months. If you really, really work hard at it you'll notice things getting better in three weeks. But, if you just let it be, and not worry, you'll notice things getting better in 21 days.
