I have stayed mainly with treadmill and multi gym weight set. Good common sense and listening to your body plus start slow and work up gradually was what my doc advised.
Know you must be excited. A long journey but you are almost there and it will be a great day.
I just had my six month checkup and you probably read my report on other posts. Don't be surprised if you have some residual leaking (a few drops) after you pee....unless you are patient enough to wait a couple of minutes. Also if you stress with some heavy lifting or something like a full golf swing you may leak a little. A relatively full bladder may put more pressure on the cuff and have a tendency to leak if stressed. I just plan to go every 2-3 hours since my bladder does not seem to hold a lot. 200-300 ml max and most of the time I am betweet 100-200ml.
You will soon be all smiles....dry ones!
