The comments suggesting that you wait before dealing with the worst are correct. You may, if you are in the majority of cases, have pants & pads for a brief (didn't intend the pun) period.
When they pulled my catheter, the nurse said the majority of her patients did not leak, period. I messed up her stats, but then, I have that little cloud following me.
When I talk about one Depends and seven-eight pads a day - I used the Depends as a "last-ditch" backup. Some days I over did it, and filled a pad + some. Most days the Depends went in the trash almost dry. A few days (memorable, at best) were worse. By DaVinci +about 120 days, I was generally on pads only.
No one said you sit in your pee. You will probably want to change pads often (don't let the economy-minded folks convince you to wait until they are soggy - that promptes urinary tract infections), change whenever they are uncomfortable.
Can you work in an "adult diaper"? I did - it was work or lose my job and my insurance. No room for that choice when $166,000 worth of radiation was down the pipe a few weeks on.
If you have to, you will find slim-fit and kakhi pants to be avoided, but dark loose-fit pants work fine.
Prep for the worst - buy one pack, check them out for size, take them back if they don't fit (Walgreens was the best at dealing with that phase for me).
If you don't need them, donate the pack to a local assistance agency.
