That's a lot of Kegels. My doc told me to start out 3 days after cath removal, doing 4 sets a day, of 5 reps, holding each for 5 seconds, and when it got easy, to go to 4 sets a day of 5, holding for 10 seconds.
I started at 5 seconds, then after a week, went to 7 seconds, now I am 10 seconds. I'm also 3 weeks, almost 4, post op. Ive been told that if you do too many Kegels, te muscle gets tired and it will delay your recovery, even make it worse. So maybe you should experiment and cut down on the Kegels and see what happens in a couple of days.
I'd also like to know, whether just enough to holding the Kegels as tight as possible, or just enough to stop any flow.
