Hi everyone, I can't believe it! I was resigned to wearing pads, but except for a few very small spots, I am dry day and night! the only thing is that when I am walking, and sitting, I have a sensation of wetting myself, but there is nothing there, is this a phsycological thing, or has anyone else experienced this?

Hey mal, 
Sitting is my biggest problem.  I have had some sensations like you on other occasions, only to find the pad dry.  I wonder if the pads are just very effective and take the moisture away?
Also, you and I are just one day off the same track, so it is nice to compare notes!  Thanks.

HI Mal

I have been pretty dry until I flew to Texas this week. I was up and down a lot at the airport and rushed around and pulling on the luggage and going throuh the security check point when I realized I was having what I think was stress leaking I could not control. Putting all your stuff through the metal detector and such and made two trips through the thing myself and had to be searched by hand and trying to keep my pants up with no belt and keep up with my stuff with my ID and ticket in my teeth. fortunatly I made it to the bathroom after that and have done very well on the trip. We were able to walk to most places, and got to see the Houston Astros shut our St. Louis 7-0. So much about the trip. Hope things will get better for you. It will just take time. We are all different. No guarantees.

Good luck

I laugh every time I remember Tony's experience with airport security.

Airport security searches of Prostrate Cancer Warriors give being "shaken down" a new meaning!
