Neo bladder issues

I had my bladder removed 8 weeks ago in order to ensure the cancer that had been present there did not return. It all seems to have gone pretty well however I do get occasional leaks from my neo bladder (Indiana Pouch). I now catheterise every 3 hours rather than the initial 4 that was recommended by the urology nurses. Can anyone tell me whether this is common at this stage of my recovery. I am 50 years old and the leakages seem to come after I've been doing a bit more than I should have in terms of walking or chores around the house.

Thanks for any replies.
