Hi Telstar. Welcome back. Sounds like you're doing fine. As far as urinary control -- in my case, "false moves" such as bending down to pick something up; turning around to back up the car, blowing my nose too hard etc. led to leaks. However, as I continued doing those moves, the leaking disappeared.
So gradually work yourself up to moving around like you used to -- just the moves, not the weight-lifting.
I also wore the pads for security after I really needed them. I probably would still wear one if I was sleeping over at someones's house. When you're ready to let the pads go for good, try putting a tissue in your Jockeys when you venture out. It willpick up the stray drops and make you feel better about
the whole thing. Ultimately, you will lose the security blanket -- AND LOVE IT.
Best to ya. Keep up the good work.
