RRP on 7/20, started going without pads at night a few weeks ago, then decided on Friday to try going for the weekend without a pad. Success with that (including a couple of sneezes at the store yesterday) gave me nerve to go to the office without a pad today. I won't claim a few drops didn't escape here and there, but I have no regrets.
Now off to the hospital for my prostascint scan tomorrow, then the RO on Thursday for the results and to find out what sort of fun and games are ahead of me.
