I'm about seven months out and still have occasional leaks on the order of a few drops after voiding, which is often, because I think I lost some bladder capacity with the surgery.
I looked at the Attends website and the ones that look like a cup look neat, but they are kinda pricey online.
I have experimented with using an Always women's product that is kind of a cross between a pantyliner and a thin maxipad, the super long kind without the wings. I take two of them, and put the top of the adhesive side of one on the top of the absorbing side of the other. Then I take the bottom of the one that was on top and twist it around, so that that one's absorbing side sticks to the bottom adhesive side of the other. This makes a cup similar to the Attends thing, but at a fraction of the price. The adhesive parts of both of these then can be attached to the inside of the pouch area of one's shorts. The twist forms an overlapping area that doesn't leak.
A new "twist" on an old proverb: Prostate Cancer is the Mother of Invention.
For what it's worth, which is not much.
PSA (10/04): 2.9; PSA (2/06):4.4, on Androgel (serum T about 450) at age 56; negative DRE, no symptoms.
PSA (5/06):5.7 with a free PSA% of 8, OFF Androgel (serum T 163).
Biopsy (5/06): 4/12 samples positive; postitive samples only on right side; max Gleason 4+3=7 (in 2 of the 4 -from area nearest bladder. One was 40% of sample, the others less than a mm. thick.
DaVinci robotic-assisted laparoscopic radical prostatectomy + bladder lift + Right nerve plastic surgery (8/23/06).
Catheter out 4 weeks postop, due to internal pinhole leak at bladder-urethra junction.
Pads-Not needed after about 2 weeks post-cath, but gotta go a lot more often.
Final pathology report:T2c-both sides,but in capsule; neg. margins, neg. lymph nodes, neg. seminal vesicles; final max Gleason still 4+3=7.
1st Follow-up PSA (11/7/06): <0.008 !!!; serum T: 195 - still OFF Androgel (at present). Low T may delay return of erectile function (in presence of one damaged nerve).
2nd Follow-up PSA (3/19/07): <0.003 !!!; serum T: pending.
