When I was five years old I was diagnosed with perthese desease and was put in a spika cast until age six and a half and wore diapers during that time. In Viet Nam in 1968 was wounded by shrapnel that caused me to loose bladder control. When the doctors told me that I would never get my bladder control I swore that I would never use diapers. Well I used a closed cath system for the first year and a half but had so much scare tissue built up in my urethra it got to where I couldn't take the pain and bleeding any more so I reluctantly switched to diapers. My wife was fine with it and back then disposable were far and few between and not worth using. Well needless to say I went with cloth diapers and plastic pants. I have been in diapers ever since. Now during the day I use disposables and at night I go with cloth and plastic pants. Because of the wound to my spine I can't sleep on my back or stomach due to the pain it causes. Having to sleep on my side I have never found a disposable diaper that didn't leak like a sieve at night. All of them have the same problem all the absorbancy is right down the middle and nothing out on the sides so all you have is two thin plastic sheets on your side and I might as well not wear anything if disposables are the only thing I have because I couldn't be any wetter in the morning. My wife passed away last year after fifty years of marriage so Now I'm by myself but when she was alive she supported me in every way including my incontinence and I miss her very much.
