I guess I'm one of the luck ones too.
open RP 9/23, catheter removed 10/1. I wore pads for a few days, and an adult diaper for a few nights, but I haven't had as much as drop 1. *shrugging shoulders* I do seem to need to pee more frequently, but other than that I've been without issue. Like Trevor above -- I'm in very good physical condition (weight lifting, cardio most days of the week). Dunno if that has anything to do with it or not.
On a side note (but perhaps equally important), I had night wood 4 days post-op (with the catheter still in place), and have managed the deed several times in the past two weeks w/o any drugs/pumps etc. I feel lucky and blessed.
If I can join the zero club in a few weeks, I'll gladly buy the first round or two.
