I am one of the few here that did not get dry, even after 22 months, and had to have an AUS installed.
Now don't worry, I am not suggesting you will have to go that far, you are still early in your recovery. My point is I used pads for that long, at least 3 a day sometimes 5 and I continued with my life style.
My surgeon is located 5 miles from Disney World so every 3 months I had an appointment with him. My wife and I bought a 1 year pass to Disney, pretty good deal if you are a Florida resident, and after the appointment, we would spend the rest of the day at the park. I carried a back pack loaded with pads inside sandwich bags. When I needed to change a pad, I would duck into the restroom and put in a new pad, put the old pad in the sandwich bag and drop it in the trash on the way out.
I always used the handicap stall so I always had "room to work".
In 2012-2014 I left a lot of wet pads in the trash. We also went on a cruise did the same thing so don't let your recovery ruin your life.
