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.
Thanks for your response again. I have tried pull-ups but prefer to wear a belted slip (currently using ID Expert “Super” for my park runs and for longer car journeys). I also wear plastic pants over the top of the slip for extra security as I always leak around my leg tops because of the exercise but using them ensures a complete seal, as I lose a lot of urine in one go. Park runs are going well and you are right, the people are very nice and supportive of the condition that I have and are pleased that I do not let this side effect of cancer treatment interfere with my exercise routine. Please let me know if I can help other people with their management of similar situations. Thanks.
