I am 4 weeks post op and 11 days post catheter, I had to have the catheter put back in for a few more days. Since it's removal I have been pretty lucky with only little leaks but I do need to go to the bathroom constantly sometimes. I went into work yesterday for the first time and during the morning and felt as though everything was almost normal, only had to go to the bathroom once during the morning and no pressure. But I must have stayed too long and all last night it felt like I had a drip always moving down the passage and no way to stop it. So I have learned lets go a little slower and will limit my time at the office a little and build up to it and not get so tired until I have built up my strength better. I have the same feeling of urgency weather it's a thimble's worth or a whole bottle. I thingk it just takes time to heal and get retrained, anyway I hope, but as I said overall I don't leak too much, I generaly use one pad for 24 hours.
