Hiya,

Congrats on the dry night, i was dry and pad free at night a month after my catheter was removed and i got a MASSIVE buzz from it and a huge grin as it is your first big hurdle you have successfully cleared.

I was three & months post catheter removal before i went pad free during the day, i had been dry for a little while but it was a big decision for me to take to go pad free, the pads give you security and that is what is hard to let go of.

Wishing you lots of dry days soon and keep on smiling ;)))

Only 2 small squirts while rolling over some heavy logs,stress ones I guess. Since I do I alot of heavy lifting and ladder climbing not to mention bending over, a pad my still be required for work. As for the rest of the time,I'm going to live on the edge!!!!
