As a registered nurse in the long term care space, I have seen a lot of patients with incontinence. Men have a harder time discussing the issue. I am hopeful to spread the word and continue conversations around male incontinence. One product not often mentioned is an external catheter. It adheres to the anatomy to keep my patients dry. They can wear one unit all day and they can use their insurance to cover it. Hope this story and little bit of knowledge helps others continue the discussion.
Please can you tell me more about this option?
I have just posted a question re a long term Catheter possibility. My father has been told catheters will potentially cause infection and the risk is too high for him to have one permanently. Since he has had the catheter removed he has gone from being positive and happy to rapid decline. He is so depressed he says life is not worth living. He is a big personality and this situation has totally diminished him.
I am so sorry to hear about the troubles you are facing. One product to ask your doctor about would be Men's Liberty. If your father has experienced issues in the past with condom catheters, Men's Liberty might be something to try. It uses a medical grade adhesive to stay put and directs the urine to a pouch. It is also covered by insurance. I hope your father finds a solution that helps him feel more confident.
