Just a quick up-date. Today was four weeks out + 1 day from the operation. I was feeling good and actually went out to lunch with my wife. It was nice to see things returning to normal. My energy levels have increased considerably in just the past 3 days and I am feeling stronger all the time. Still trying to get the feel for the bladder though. I have some control but it is only sporatic like leaning up in a chair to get up and all of sudden oohps. Oh well I am sure that will improve as well.

Rudy,

Glad you got out a bit today. That's great to hear. Just keep working the kegels and you'll get more and more of the sense of control.

Rudy, I am glad to hear you are out. Life WILL return to a NEW normalcy.
I still have the same loss of control when I strain to get up or work out. But I have long since lost the embarassment of it. I am just happpy that I have so few effects from the new high tech plumbing job.
Keep up the good work!

Rudy,
Glad to hear that you are getting out and about. I had the same control issue with getting up out of a chair. No matter how slow or carefull I was going from sitting to standing, I always sprung a leak. That problem slowly improved over the period of about 3 or 4 weeks.

;) KC thanks for the info, I figured it should get better as time goes on. I guess I am just a little too impatient. I've only been using the Neo for 4 and half days now.

Rudy,

Took me around 4 to 6 weeks. So, for you that probably will equate to 6 days or so! :)

Yes, patience is the key. You can't hold the world record in ALL categories my friend!
