I guess I'm here because this site tilts towards diapers as a preferred management tool for incontinents. All the other management tools failed me. Detrol and Ditropan gave me such intense drymouth that I was drinking enough to float a rowboat, making each and every day a day-long accident. I've had external catheters come unglued in the most awkward situations imaginable, including my boss's car. When my then urologist told his nurse to teach me to self-cath, the sphincters clamped shut, making insertion impossible. I'm not a candidate for artificial sphincter implantation. Because I've had a sphincterotomy and a TURP, I leak continually, and because I have occasional episodes of bowel leakage, diapers and waterproof pants are the way to go for me. Does this make me AB/DL? No. Call them a lifestyle if you wish, but they work for me; they enable me to meet my obligations and go about my daily routine as nothing else has. Carl

Hi Carl

Just wanted you and all the other good people on this board to know that your view has my full support at least.

Love

Marjorie

I agree with Marjorie.

Nobody here is going to judge your choice in using diapers to manage your incontinence. While incontinence may not be a disease in itself, I think your experiences with drugs lend credence to the old saying "Sometimes the cure is worse than the disease!"
