Hi, It's pretty early days and the most abnormal thing is to be completely dry. Drinking 1.5litres a day isn't much. If you're drinking after 7pm then you may be leaking later. When you lie down water in your legs rebalances so you can get more in your bladder than you think. I'd suggest not drinking after 7pm and see if it is better.
Like you I had no alcohol for a spell. My spell was from being diagnosed until it healed completely. Now I only drink twice a week and keep it to 2 bottles of beer or half a bottle of wine a time. Part of the reason was it made me anxious in the night if I drank too much.
I was using 4 pads for a while but never leaked at night.
Normal progression is to be dry at night and then leak in the day. Each week you'll notice leaking starts a bit later until you're dry until midday then on to being dry in the afternoon then all day.
You might leak a bit if you bend down, lift something, laugh, or become aroused and that might last longer. Walking lets a little bit come out with each step in the early days. You will likely find the the force of passing is about double what it was before. Mine certainly is.
People do all sorts of things, some go to the pub almost immediately and others go riding bicycles. There is an element of taking it as you need and see how it goes. Although in my opinion letting it heal as smoothly as possible is likely to end up with better recovery.
All the best, Peter
