Ditto what the other guys said. I don't think there anything that results it totally dry and no leaks ever. Still, it gets your life back and you can function normally. I rarely leak enough to get my pants wet. The thin panty liner I wear catchs the residual and stess leaks that will occasionally occur.
It you did not hear about this little tip from reading some of the old posts I repeat it here:
You can pee one handed at a urinal by holding willie in one hand and run the other hand inside your pants and underwear to activate the bulb. When you are done take the hand inside your pants/underwear and press on the urethera behind the scrotum to push out any residual pee. This will greatly reduce the amount of residual that may leak out before the AUS totally closes which will take 20 seconds or so. I do this and don't wait hardly at all. I find it more helpful than "milking" willie althought that helps also.
Just do it! You will be glad you did.
