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 now got to the end of the tolterodine tablets with no improvement in the urgency when taking exercise. As suggested by my urologist, I have now been switched to Mirabegron in the hope of some improvement. I continue my parkruns and look forward to them, though I am still wearing slip/nappies for the duration and when undertaking journeys and flying. I can`t get on with pull-ups but wearing slips is a great comfort so I stick with these. Thanks.
