Welcome to HW.
Remember that you are the patient. When You think there is a problem, don't hesitate to call doctor, or go to emergency room.
Try to keep an eye on how much you are leaking by weighing your pads, or at least estimating how full they are. Compare that to the amount of fluids you are taking in. They should be close.
Spasms are not uncommon, and should subside in hours, not days. Flomax is also a common medication to reduce spasms, and get things back to normal.
Again, don't be afraid to act if you are having unusual pain or a sense of fullness.
