    Lightest/thinnest lightweight "pull up"?

    1
    Hi, I'm very new to both this group and to wearing pull ups so I would appreciate anyone's suggestions.  If I'm being honest with myself, I've been having light leakage [smore than just "dribbles", but not excessive at all] for quite a while now, and it finally got the point of "enough already" last week when I noticed some very visble wet spots - even on my chair.  I decided to stop ignoring...

  • Right after Labor Day, I got a pretty bad UTI. It started out slow, so it was about a week before I went to a doctor because I wasn't sure if it really was a UTI. They gave me Cipro but it wasn't helping after a full course. Went to another doctor who sent it out for a culture and it turned out I needed ampicillin to get rid of it. After that, and Diflucan to correct the ensuing yeast infection,...
  • Hi, I'm a 78 year-old male with prostate and bladder problems for over 18 years.  My prostate cancer was treated with radiation which resulted in a urethral stricture.  7 urethrotomies and at least that many dilations have left me incontinent.  The urologist and I decided to install a SupraPubic catheter 2 months ago, hoping that the stricture would finally close off the urethra and solve the...

    I am 14 from England and I have problems with needing the toilet a lot and not being able to wait long. I think it would help if I didn't feel so alone. Is there anyone out there my age who has this problem too?
