    And then this guy sets everything back...

    We had a local group here with about 85 total members and 20+ average at the monthly meetings. We had out meets in public restaurants and meeting rooms. There was a couple times we had similar problems. Like the guy, who sounds like this one, who raised heck because we wouldn't allow him to come...

    Is this what incontinence feels like?

    Calico, there are different types of incontinence. Functional and Urge for example where you do get a sensation of "urgency" or rather "oh! i gotta go now!" before wetting but might not be able to do anything before it's too late. For us who don't have Mixed (mostly nero-issues where you may or...

    24/7 (Not Dependent)

    For helping/eliminating the bumps, use pure silicon lube. It should have a #3 on it. It's a little expensive but little goes a long way! Wash the area for a while with very warm/hot water to open the pores. Then rub in the silicon over the whole area until it's 'slick'. Rinse with warm water but...

    Got a question.

    Incontinence is basically just defined as 'not having control' of bladder or bowel. What you are describing is "nocturnal enuresis". If the doctor didn't say this for some reason you can find a lot if you search it. There might be something in there that might help but without specifics it's...

    accidents at work

    I'm sorry babyhuey, I still have the same issue with not being clear. I wasn't "directing" it to you but more in general to what others think the 'best solutions' are to issues we have that they don't think thru. And yeah that thread is still going strong isn't it? LOL

    accidents at work

    bebehuey, there's a big difference between those living with incontinence and those just imagining what it's like. Even though some opinions can be valuable, all too often they aren't thought out for realistic application. I've just about given up on talking to people online (if you notice I'm...

    Yesterday's Appointment with Urodynamics....

    I have spent so much time back and forth between clinics and hospitals, both with and without insurance and the difference is just blatantly obvious. It's not because they are trying to save me money either. I had several tests done and a week later I asked the doc about the results - he didn't...

    Just discovered I am incontinent

    I been using Nike women's compression shorts for a few years now. They work perfect and don't go 1/2 way down the thigh and feel weird like the men's ones do.

    Urologist Part 2

    Grizz, have they tried Dicyclomine with you yet? It sounds like it's constant BPH (been a while since we talked about it) and the 2 that I was given was Tamsulosin (Flomax) and Doxazosin (Cardura) for chronic BPH. They are both an Alpha-Blocker and can also create stress IC side effect...

    Just discovered I am incontinent

    All of the info above is really good. I just want to add this - when you are testing a new diaper, test at least 3 or while 1 works, test another brand at home for at least a pack. Diapers don't always have the same issues depending on even a little difference in taping or your physical...

    Yesterday's Appointment with Urodynamics....

    Opinion and why it's called "practicing medicine" instead of "perfected medicine" but I can understand why they are very concerned from what you described. One thing I've noticed is when you have really good insurance vs not good ins - they don't 'prescribe' as many tests that aren't really...

    getting worse

    Incontinence isn't a disease, it's a symptom of another problem. If you are doing that, you have another problem that needs to be found.

    can catheter use for a month cause incontinence?

    I think he meant to say Kegel exercises, not Kringle. Also the full site info for that post is at: Urinary catheters: MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia It's always good to read everything you can if you have questions about medical issues, then talking to your doc. Something I noticed was the...

    Back from urologist

    A good friend of mine just had his aorta(?) replaced and before he was training every morning at 5-9am with "world's strongest men" people. Flipping a tractor tire 300 times before breakfast for example. He had the surgery a month ago and he can't lift his arms neck high, open anything or do...

    Back from urologist

    The expected infection would be a UTI from the cath which is an easy fix. I was curious about the infections and 'life without a spleen' because I'm not real familiar with what the spleen really did so I started looking it up. The one thing most of the sites were all saying was that you had to...
