Hi, new here, followed some folks at another site over here, seems a bit more active.
I got the walking talk (knees too shot to run) at the first meeting with my surgeon, who pointed me at something claiming that brisk walking actually slowed progression of PCa, (helping too-fat cardio an added benefit) - he asked me to do an hour, I did, got no progress on weight, went to an hour and a half or two hours most nights fairly consistently. 2 months of Kegeling pre-surgery as well. Got up and walked a few laps (very slowly) around the hospital floor 18 hours after surgery, 4 days after surgery crept half a mile up the road and back in 90 minutes, wincing every time the catheter moved (every step) and made a lot more progress after the darn thing was out (1 week post.) 3-6 miles most nights, aiming to stay below 20 minutes/mile. Leakage was pretty "good" from week 2 to week 5 (1 pad a day or less, usually not really soaked) and has depressingly gotten worse at week 6/7 (I guess I'm just starting week 8 today) with most days having 1 pad, but it's really soaked, and the leakage while walking has gotten considerably worse. Dr. is all "be better in 6 months" and I can see that I have it a lot better than some folks have, but still frustrating to be travelling backwards; Especially since the walking is key to making any progress on my pesky weight.
