Without any real knowledge about
you than the information you have given about
any co-morbidities, it is difficult to give you more specific advice than encouragement.
That being said, from my expereinces with major surgeries and my radical prostatectomy, here is my two cents / cheerleading:
By my reading, it is almost 10 months that you are in recovery?
It doesn't make a huge difference but it might to your spirits!
"Time heals all wounds....
I'm not certain of your age (48?) but regardless of that and any other health issues I would continue to do at least three sets of ten kegal exercises three timea a day every day, forever.
Muscles not used atrophy. The pelvic floor muscles that work together to assist your bladder are no exception. I do mine whenever I am driving.
Your drips/leaks suggest to me that your pelvic floor muscles and your sub-conscious control need more conscious effort.
One other general piece of advice (that you may already be following/over-achieving)- for anyone that has had general anesthesia in the last year - is to drink a lot more water than normal.
That stuff in general anesthesia has more of a "half-life" in the system than you might imagine.
Finally I would at least "speed" walk (more vigorous exercise if you are able) 20 minutes every day. The resilience of the healthy parts of your body will carry those problem areas to health more quickly. It will lift your spirits.
Wishing you every recovery.
