I have a herniated disk in my back which I have recently got told that this is likely the cause of my bowel incontinence. Incontinence is fairly new to me and I’m unsure on what to do next. Where do I buy the products? What’s the best thing I can use? I don’t want to smell! Has anyone else experienced anything similar?
Don’t worry, there are now incontinence products available that feature odour control technology. This prevents any unwanted odour and can keep your mind at rest.
You also have the choice of a range of products depending on your situation. All in ones are belted nappy style products that are often the most absorbent option for managing faecal incontinence. However, this depends on your mobility level and how severe your incontinence is. You may require a smaller product. Could you provide some more information about your lifestyle and how severe your incontinence is please?
There are products available that are not bulky and are designed to provide discretion.
Specific incontinence pads are often recommended for light faecal incontinence. As your incontinence is more moderate, absorbent pull up pants offer more security and may be ideal for you.
A pull up style is ideal for an active lifestyle and can be handled just like normal underwear. As they are designed with stretchy material, they allow freedom of movement. Pull up pants will feel just like normal pants, therefore will be much less bulky than all in ones. It is recommended that you use a highly absorbent product for faecal incontinence.
Do you think you’d be okay putting on and removing these pants? Let me know if you would like any recommendations for specific pants.
