Hey Swim....You KNOW I think your great...but....no matter how they get inside...they surgery is still major in there. I would not recomend anyone working that hard so soon after surgery. But who am I to talk. I would encourage everyone to listen to their Dr. and their bodies. One mistake could cause injures that would take much longer to heal.
I always felt great except for the back pain I had from the spasam before surgery. Probably a good thing I was leaking like a rusty bucket...that kept me from doing too much. Plus a family that stayed on my A** all the time....heheheheh
Markus, Just do what has to be done and let the rest go. Or call some favors from friends or family.

March 1st Leaking has crept back up to 6 - 8 pads a day ???????
March 8th Started Detrol LA to see if it helps with the leaking?
March 29th Collagen injection into sphincter / bladder neck area to control excessive leaking. Worked for a couple of days then back to leaking.
April 17th (Six Months Post Op) 2nd Collagen Injection to control excessive leaking. Leaking started back next day at work!
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!
May 30th Follow up with my Dr. and 3rd Post Op PSA.
June 1st Start Bio-Feedback to try to control my leaking.
