I also had a large prostate but I did not required s cath before surgery. I had it 15 days later as a general rule of my surgeon.
I think control when sitting, sleeping, is good news, it was my case. I needed to urinate often in the first weeks, this is because bladder has shrunk because of cath. First days I leaked a lot, but after 8 week I am close to be continent, 15 g. per day. Probably you will follow a similar path, be patient.
