JCL, I am 10 weeks from RRP and down to one pad, mostly due to the "squirts" that you mention. They just seem to happen on their own.
I was concerned about the caffeine and how it could impact the recovery. I had always been a 3-4 cup of coffee person and a cola drinker. I have gone off the coffee/soda for two weeks, but found no difference in my repsonse to incontinence. Same squirts and dribbles.
I've decided to cut down to 2 cups of coffee p[er day and get the caffeine free sodas if I must drink them ( and I have determined I must!) Alcohol has not had an affect on me either, though I drink sparingly.
Good luck in you recovery
