I had a combination of hormone suppressant and radiotherapy and, apart from the usual side effects, I am hopeful of a cure. I restarted physical exercise (Parkrun) a few weeks ago to improve my stamina and lose some weight. The running cycle starts at 0900 every Saturday but I have to wear a full disposable nappy as I just have to “go” just before and during the run, despite emptying my bladder a number of times before the start. I have no actual incontinence. It`s as if the physical effort induces the urgency. I have also started wearing a full nappy when on longer journeys where toilets might not be available and for “peace of mind”. I`m scheduled to see a urologist next month but all the medical comment I`ve had so far has been very laid back and almost lacking in interest.
Any supporting comment you could offer would be most welcome. Thanks.
Hi John, Like you I also have done a few parkruns. They are a great way of exercising and meeting new people. I love them. Have you tried a pull up pant? These are more discreet and more comfortable than a slip (nappy). I have been using these pull up pants for a long time now during exercise and I find them to be the best for me. I use the depend active ones. They do a male version too. Good luck and all the best. Keep up the park runs
