I get Incontinance pads from the Incontinance service. Most of the time they have no support so I’m waking up soaked in urine or soaking the sofa in wee. Sometimes it’s so bad that I change the pad every few minutes. Always sweating and no matter how much I wash I can smell pee .
I’m told that I’m on the highest pads and won’t do a catheter due to infection.
However I have bought the cheap pants from Tesco and omg they are so comfortable , I don’t feel like I’m wearing them and I’ve not had one leak.
Would I be able to ask the gp to get them on prescription?
I don’t know, Martine. I suspect the answer won’t be one you want to hear - but until you ask him/her you won’t know. It might be worth talking to your pharmacist first and showing them the Tesco one - they might know a way around this.
