Many thanks francij1 & Maria-B for your messages. Much appreciated.
In response to your points, my wellness physio still expects me to wear a light pad when I am out & about / at work which I am doing. Her rationale about not wearing one at home is that it is simply the start point so if I suddenly need to go to the loo it is close by. Plus it is also part of her thinking that the more you are 'distracted' by concentrating on something other than worrying about leaks should lead over time to less reliance on the pad. Regarding the Shard Physio help, no doubt like other support services, they really try to get you focused on the Pelvic floor exercises, so your partner will need to ensure he keeps doing them every day!
