I started having urinary incontinence several years ago. The different doctors I have seen have tried every prescription for it that I have seen advertised. Then I had a Medtronic Stimulation System implanted in my butt, that is supposed to “stimulate” my bladder, but it hasn’t helped. The last thing my urologist tried is Botox injections into the bladder, that seemed to help at first, but now I am using catheters daily, because I can no longer empty my bladder.
I am not looking for any “cure” to my incontinence right now, because I am going in to have a knee replacement in 2 weeks. What I am hoping to find, is if anyone knows if there are any washable type underpants that I could get, that would hold the urine I can’t hold from the time I feel that I need to go, and the length of time it takes to get to the bathroom.
Right now, I am wearing Depends, with liners that I get on-line, that helps keep me from going through 5-7 pairs of the Depends a day, and nite. I can’t use any of the pads in the stores, even the overnight ones, because I just end up wetting down my legs & into my shoes, when I do.
