The urologist who gave me my sphincterotomy described himself as a glorified mechanic. If you need a new part, they'll do what they need to do to fix it. However, I have found that for medical assistance in managing the daily demands of incontinence, occupational therapists and pelvic floor physical therapists are far more useful.

Your story sounds a lot like mine. Mine started about 20 years ago. My days are in taped diapers, but at night, I now use cloth diapers and plastic pants. That saves me from having to get up a night to change. My wife supports me in all of this. .... Paul Martin

It took me some years to come to an acceptance, tried basically all the medication out there, to no avail. side effects proved more difficult to deal with than wetting accidents. So in the end, I went down the diaper route, and never looked back. I can function in everyday life, sure it does require some planning ahead, but besides that, no big deal, anymore, despite being in them now 24/7.
