I am 15 months out from surgery and in zero club. My problem is I'm still leaking. I find that when I walk alot it increases leakage. I will fill a pad a day. I know that does'nt seem like much but at this stage it's a drag. When I work out with power walking I can half fill a pad in 45 minutes. I feel I've probably come as far as I'm going to in this area. I know alot of you guys out there are in the newer stages of our battle. Anyone out there that has gotten better at a later stage. I'm thankful for my zeros but I'm sick of water in the basement.
As always Carry On.
