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.
ve tried pull-ups but they don`t suit me – inclined to leak around the leg tops and ruck up when I exercise. I much prefer slip (nappies) as I can keep them tightly in place using the close-fitting velcro tabs as well as wearing my slip under a tight pair of briefs, plus a brief style plastic pant over the top to guard against leg top seepage. This combination works well for me and enables me to enjoy the runs and also relax on longer journeys when I might be anxious to locate the next toilet. I have never had any embarrassing leaks when wearing this arrangement. For the record, I am very pleased with ID Expert medium slips. No improvement on the medication yet, but it could be 3-6 months, according to the urologist.
