He is only 5 months post op, and his recovery and improvements may continue for up to 2 years or more, so early days as yet. For comparison, I was pad free after 7 months. And the improvement was gradual.
With regard to the dry at night issue, that is a good sign, but does he get warning if he needs to urinate and can he wake up and get to the loo alright? That would also be a good sign IMV. Gravity will also be helping night time control as I understand it. I was dry at night long before I got daytime control back.
Is he at all anxious about nocturnal dryness to the point where he loses sleep? Which might make him more tired during the day? If so why not wear a pad, if it removes that anxiety and allows a good night's sleep? Agree that late afternoon/evening or when tired is likely to induce muscle stress or fatigue leaking.
PFEs did not help me. What might help him is if he clenches and tightens things up before exerting, lifting a bale of hay or whatever. Control does get better slowly, but he is still very early on that road.
Edit to add: is he wearing briefs during the day? I wore boxers until post op. Briefs support pads and when pad free they continue to give that little extra support that works for me.
