Not sure I'm the one you wwant to hear from since I'm one of the "leakers" here. Work your kegeals like the Dr. says to at first. Do not try to over do them. After you get healed up for a couple of months you might be able to add more reps. At over 7 months post op I am working the Kegeals as often as I think of it. Seems to have made a differance in the last week or so. I have cut out almost all caffeene also.
Hope you dry up quic, but your not alone if you dont.
Keep working at it

May 14th Second Opinion about my leaking and Options at OU Medical Center. After reviewing my records the Dr. feels I will probably need some surgical intervention to stop my leaking. But did agree to try Bio-Feedback and work hard on the Kegeal's first!
