I only have one kidney, lost one in a car accident as a teen. I started having pain around the area of my kidney. After many test my nephrolgist told me I had ureter retrograde reflux. In short urine in my bladder refluxes back up into my kidney. He told me if this continues it would cause kidney damage so I should not hold back any urine. I told how can I do that without being on the toilet all the time. He said I could try a leg bag, but I am allergic to adhesives, it causes my to have blisters. He then said, "I guess you will just have to use diapers or you will damage the kidney and be on dialysis. I was a bit shocked. I always wanted to be required to wear diapers, but this I never dreamed would happen. I have learned that mandatory diapers can be a burden and a lot of work. I am accepting what must be.
