I became dry at two months post op and then a month later started leaking again. Not much and one pad would have been enough for several days but it was enugh to force me to go back to using a pad. about
the same time the leaking started I also began to have perineum aching again. This lasted for about
three weeks and then the aching stopped and so did the leaking. It is normal for this to occur over the first few months after surgery. The internal healing and settling that occurs takes a while. One thing different the second time I became dry is that I also stopped having any type of stress incontinence.
Hang in there as it will get better over time.
