My urologist had me keep a bladder diary - that was very enlightening. I did not realize how much I was leaking for sure until I kept that diary. I found that the leaking is more than I had thought. I believe that just having to keep a record made me more aware of the feelings of constant dripping. I also discovered it made a difference in what I was sitting on. If I sat on the couch or a hard chair it seemed like my leaking was guite abit less. If I sat on my chair at work (executive high back chair with more of a rise in the front under the back of my knees or in the car which has a simular rise in the front behind my knees that I leaked more. I also found that in just standing that the leaking was at its greatest and also a bit less but still great in walking.
I had never really thought about the fact that what one sits on or what one is doing has an impact on leaking. I always just thought of it being if one coughed or did lifting or some physical work.
I now have ordered samples of various diapers to try. I did try the Wellness diaper and found it really not good. I hope some of the other samples are better. The main thing I want to find is one that will alow me to go all day and not have to change and one that will not leak so that I don't have to wear a kitchen garbage bag over the diaper and under the plastic pants. Leaking at work really sucks.
The doctor on the 11th is going to go in with a camera catheter thing and look at my bladder. I hope that is not one nightmare experience. I plan on also talking more with the doctor about what I can do to correct the problem (if anything as I totally can not take the meds due to the other meds I am on for my heart). Perhaps some form of excersize will help but who knows. I also want to find out more about that he thinks could have caused this.
As most know I have enjoyed wearing diapers in the past for the pleasure of wearing them but actually having to wear them and then there is the issue of how do I address this condition with my mate and or other family members. I am of three trains of thought: One tell no one, Two tell my mate, Three tell my mate and the adult children. Any feedback on how others address this issue and what responce they got from family or there mate would be appreciated.
