Been lurking for a while, first time posting.
Had DaVinci RP on 12/23/2011.
Cathetar removed 12/31/2011.
Incontinance is not bad, one light pad a day.  However, when urinating, it seems to take forever to stop the flow.  Is this normal, or something I should be concerned about?
Thanks in advance.

First, welcome to HW, thanks for coming. I can't say that it is normal, as normal seems to be whatever each individual finds himself with. You seem to fall into the middle of most guys experiences, though. It's just been 24 days since catheter removal, there's still swelling and some adjusting being made down there and in the brain, so I don't think that is a big issue now. It will take a while for the brain and the remaining urine controls to rework how they are gonna read each other. Give it 3 months, then see how you do.
