My da vinci surgery was May 31, so that makes this 10+ weeks post surgery. I've been pad-free for almost a week. A month ago I had worked up to 300 kegels a day, which was when my surgeon told me I'd be dry, and he was pretty much on target.
My question though is whether I need to keep up the kegels--I have been doing them--but not hitting them as hard as I used to. I notice no problems from not doing them, though when I did hit 'em again I felt pretty out of shape.
So, those of you who are now dry, are you still doing kegels? If so, how many? And do I have to keep doin' them forever?
