Welcome - we hate to get new members, but it seems they just keep coming.
Sounds like you are doing pretty well so far. I was at 8 pads a day and multiple depends at your point. It will get better. Nights being dry is a great sign.
Get a copy of the pathology report from the doc before you leave the appointment. You'd be surprised how much information there is that the doc won't mention, but will help you understand where you are.
Get started walking and doing the kegels.
