I am soon to go on a long haul flight. A major contributor to my incontinence is diuretics, which I have to take for oedema due to nephritis. Would it be sensible to pause taking the diuretics before the flight?
It would be effective to stop taking the diuretics before taking the flight, however I would advise visiting a Doctor first to ensure this is safe. Do you have time to visit a professional before you fly?
You could also ask about some medication you could take to prevent leakages from happening on the flight.
I would recommend wearing a very absorbent product, such as an all in one so you are fully protected. Let me know if you need any product recommendations.
I fully agree with wearing a slip or pull-up so that you can be sure of a relaxed flight. I,too, am taking a long haul flight shortly and will certainly have full protection on so that I can relax for the journey without worrying will I make it to the bathroom in time. I have an over-active bladder.
Yes, anal plugs such as Coloplast plugs can be useful if you do feel comfortable wearing these. For an all in one, the TENA Flex Maxi is a reliable and highly absorbent product that can be used for a long period of time.
I would also recommend avoiding caffeine, alcohol, fizzy drinks and any other bladder irritants during your flight.
