I'm about 4 days ahead of your schedule (daVinci on 11/26 catheter out 12/4). For me I have found that after the first couple of days, I seem to be forceing myself to schedule going by the clock. There were a few days when I was out last week for an extended period and really had to go when I got home. So now I try to plan on going ~ every 3-4 hours.
I have been lucky enough that I have only been using 1-2 pads a day. I have found that my leakage is primarily stress leakage. When I sneeze, cough or laugh. Sometimes I feel it when I stand up from a sitting position.
Good luck & keep everyone posted.
