four weeks post catheder, and have been going without a pad for about
a week. Occasionally, I'll get just a drip, but no "leakage" - like drainage. I found that the men's pads are so big, so if I want to have some protection, for example if I'm going out somewhere or doing something, I'll put in a women's pad, which is much smaller, and with adhesive, will work just fine. I have to ignore the frilly packaging and peel off strips, but if it works, who cares!!
