At the moment I wear pull up nappies with plastic pants to my driving job, this is embarrassing and I desperately want to rid the need of wearing them . I’ve no choice at the moment to wear them as I’ve voided many times.
Is there an alternative as in medicine or such like?
Thanks for your help
You can purchase incontinence clamps, which stop male leaks and dribbles. They can be worn for long periods of time and have been designed especially for male drivers.
When you pull over to urinate in a urinal, you can simply press the sides of the product rather than fully remove it. These can be bought online.
Alternatively, you can ask your Doctor for a prescription of incontinence medication.
Don’t hesitate to ask if you need any more advice on managing incontinence.
Reading between the lines, I can wholeheartedly sympathise with your situation and the shame you feel. For longer journeys, I always wear a slip but have long since overcome any embarrassment I used to have in taking a “change” of slip into service station toilets and elsewhere, thinking that people were looking at me. I also used to feel self-conscious using disabled toilets but this has also become a thing of the past. If people have a problem with how I have to manage my disabilty, that
s their problem, not mine! Please do not feel bad about it. You are not alone, look at the well-stocked shelves in chemists and supermarkets, full of inco products. Good luck with the management of your condition. What you have to wear is worn for a reason, never forget that.
Have you found a product that works for you?
Let me know if you need any further advice.
I used to have a driving job driving massive trucks and I found using a good nappy, with a booster and plastic pants to be the combination of choice. This combination would allow me to drive for long periods without the worry of leaks. I have recently changed my career and still choose this combination for work. I get tena slip maxi active fit from the health authority and I buy my boosters from attends. I use pul plastic pants as they tend to be allot less sticky and hot. although they do crinkle a little, and although I may hear myself from time to time, my fiance says that she can’t and doubts very much if anyone else can. After years of wearing nappies, I have come to realise that it’s better to be well protected with a slight crinkle and a larger bum than having leaks and wet spots. My opinion is wear what not need and not let incontinence stop you from living a fun and fruitful life.
