Yes, you will do fine. To be honest, at the time I was getting ready for my final surgery, I was more concerned then with my previous two. It’s normal. Now, it’s just a distant memory. I have been hiking over the last week and can last at least five hours without any issues. Of course, I take 2 Lomotil just before and make sure I empty my pouch. More likely is the need to pee on these hikes. I think I remember doing the same with the shower, but only once a day. For me, it will be three years in August and I will be 65 in October. Good luck with your final surgery and keep us updated.
