You'll become a master managing your incontinence! I had DaVinci (not
open) surgery and found I was quite comfortable driving after two weeks, and sitting at a desk was also not an issue. BUT, moving around is when the waterworks begin. I resumed giving presentations (I'm a corporate trainer) about
a month after surgery and I can clearly remember standing in front of the room with Depends AND a pad and smiling while I leaked and leaked. At break time, head to the men's room, into a stall, and switch pads and make sure the Depends is still dry. No one knew a thing! And, maybe you'll be one of the lucky ones who has no incontinence at all.
