Thank God my incontinence is very minor at this point. I'm still using the same pad I started out with, Serenity for men. They are very good but way more than I need now. I'm at one pad a day and it never even comes close to being saturated. What are some good light pads to use? I think it won't be too long before I won't need any, but in the mean while, I'd like something lighter and more comfortable. I thank you in advance for your experience and advice.

Glad to hear that your control is improving. I no longer need regular pads either. I know use a female pad "Always Ultra Thin Super". They come 40 to a pack. I buy the ones without wings as they adhere very well to your shorts. They are very light even though they are called super. Regulars work well also and are a little lighter. I have never had a leak and they are not as hot and a lot more comfortable than the Depends for men. Russ

Howdy there, JD. Dittos to Edmund's reply. I'm very fortunate that I haven't had to use pads since about 1 1/2 months after surgery. I switched to similar pads that Edmund suggested when Serenity for Men were no longer necessary and became too uncomfortable. Being a guy who never even wore drawers before, those pads were a nuisance. The smaller ladies pads did the trick for catching the occasional 'stress leak' without feeling like I was trying to smuggle contraband into the office. And you can carry a few spares in your hip pocket if needed without them being too noticable.
Hope this helps, pal, and wishing you a quick and thorough recovery.

Hi Jd,

I just used the Assurance liners that you can get at any Wal-Mart store and they worked well for me. It has been a long time since I have needed them but they did the job for me.

Thank you all for the good information. I'm glad to hear you all seem to be doing so good, that's good news. I actually forget to put a pad on the other morning, by the time I realized it, I figured, what the hay, try the day without it. To my surprise, I came home from work dry. I know there will be times when I do heavy lifting or coughing etc. I may get a drop or so, I can deal with that.
Thanks again guys.
