Disability Q and A / Re: incontinence wear
« Last post by AndMac on 03 Nov 2018 09:26AM »
Happy to help! It took me quite a bit of effort to find this product online. Whatís available on the High Street and in supermarkets is so inadequate for my night time needs, and I suspect Iím not the only one. They would be great for a long car journey. Iíve just ordered a slightly smaller size of this particular brand. Iíd bought some from Age Uk, but they arenít much better than my standard Extra Plus pads, that I get for free.
I normally put one of the NHS pads  in with the Age UK pads if I am just at home. With the NHS pads, I have to use the loo/commode every 90 minutes or so to stay dry.

Yep the link works thank you.

Right now I am not getting out and about on the trike like I used to but if I do get back to the cycle way dog walk I will try these because I can no longer wee behind a tree without getting wet. Maybe for long car journeys too.

edit to add - I know they will be bulky but it wont show much in the wheelchair especially in winter time when I have baggy waterproof trousers on.

The link worked for me. They are massive pads, and I mean massive. They took a little bit of getting used to, at first you think ďHow  am I going to get that  in my pants?Ē But you do, and then life gets much easier.

AndMac,

I have been able to get extra large non sticky pads on Amazon for overnight.

Could you post a link please ?
I dont use pads but I do have a commode near the bed which during the night. Emptying the lidded bucket down the loo the next day can be problematic as I cant walk as I carry it without running the obvious risk of dropping or spilling it.

If anyone is staring that closely at my backside, they must have some serious problems.

I remember my mother law talking about how as we women get older they become 'invisible' to others. Thing is as people with CP we are noticeable  :-)

Of course we can always hope that we get a Labour government in the interim, and that this cruel benefit is scrapped

All those early mornings, walking out into pitch blackness, and praying that I wouldnít have to walk  across black ice.

I know what you mean  >yikes< ever winter I would love it when it snowed because it was somehow easier to walk on than bare pavement. Alas during the 1980s and early 1990s the snow rarely stayed for long and often went from slush to hard ice that was punishing when I fell on it.
