Technically this isn't an incontinence thread, but it's an issue I think incontinent people might be more familiar with, given that they wear for extended periods of time.
So I'm a male and I have a varicocele that's about as bad as they can get. So far, the doc's been telling me to wait and watch, and as long as things don't turn sour, we won't do anything about it. But recently I've noticed something very strange: over the past few weeks, whenever I wear a diaper for a while (as in, a day or more), I develop a dull ache that runs the course of the vein, i.e. not just through my little buddies but up into my abdomen and down my leg. I'm not sure why it's happening, but I suspect it's either the heat that builds up when one wears a diaper, or else I'm wearing it too tight and the pressure's causing the pain. I'll be seeing the urologist in January and we'll talk about it then, but in the mean time, has anyone else experienced this problem, and if so, have you found a way around it (besides surgery, obviously).
