  • What products are for bowel incontinence?

    David98375492873423874892 Jul 17 2017 7:13PM

    Hi, I'm looking for a product for my grandad's urinary and occasional bowel incontinence. The Depends product pages provide no information on whether a product is for urinary or bowel incontinence which is very confusing and frustrating. Likewise, the information page on bowel incontinence does not tell you which products can be used. I have called Depends and was advised both the Real Fit and Fit Flex can be used for bowel incontinence, however moderators here in these discussions have stated that only the Depends with Tabs is for bowel incontinence. Please let me know which is true.

  • Depend Protection with Tabs

    BabelTower Jul 9 2017 8:48PM

    I just wanted to say that the Depend's Protection with Tabs adult diaper has worked wonders. I don't have any control over my bowels or my bladder and these are the ones I use from the depend family. Currently I'm 27 and I don't see much info for younger people suffering from complete lose of bowel and bladder functionality as when I search it leaves me to the underwear briefs also know as pull-ups and that obviously isn't the correct product.

    The diaper doesn't do any noise under clothing, and it isn't noticeable. I have leaked when I drank a lot of water ( something I cannot avoid because I live in a tropical island) when I was in College, but I blame it to the fact I couldn't change myself in over 5 hours. Other than that it protects me well. I used it at work, family meetings, long trips and my clothes, car seats and furniture have never been wet or soiled. When used they release no odor unless it's a number 2, but no helping there. It holds the bowels pretty well even if bm happens when sitting or laying down.

    10/10 for this product, and a big cheer for Depends!

    I might write tips for younger people on the forums here as I barely see any info for people under 50 lol

    It's pretty good that I can depend on my Depends.

  • Has Anyone Else Had This Problem?

    Colorblind Jul 2 2017 8:20PM

    I am a wheelchair bound paraplegic (fully functional from the chest up). I use catheters for bladder drainage but, because I'm prone to frequent UTI's, I often deal with incontinence. I have used Depend men's undergarments for 15 years, but the last 2 packs that I have gotten, when wet, the mesh barrier that holds in the fiber-fill (or whatever it is) has given way in the same location (top right corner) and has released the filling ALL OVER the inside of the garment. This stuff is NASTY!!! It's grainy and sticky, like wet sand, and it is very difficult to wipe away and clean up. This makes cleaning the area for catheterization practically impossible. Accidentally pushing this material into the urethra, via the catheter, will almost assuredly add to the UTI's, if not lead to worse problems. In 15 years, I've never had multiple faulty undergarments in the same pack, let alone multiple packs that were ALL defective (and I buy the big double packs). Secondly, this fiber filling needs to be changed to something cottony or solid, rather than grainy and sticky. Anybody else ever dealt with this?

  • XXXL sized disposable panty or undergarments

    BleakMonique Jun 29 2017 9:32PM

    I am searching for an XXL-XXXL sized disposable undergarment for bladder leakage protection. The L/XL sizes in Depends barely fit with little flex room to move. I really wish that Depends came in larger sizes, or at least one larger size, if that is all that is possible at this time. I have a belly and always have, so I need the extra room in the waist. I don't have much luck with the traditional diapers of that size. They do provide excellent leakage protection (especially now that my problem is getting worse with age) but they are so difficult and time consuming to get on and then to stay up and on while moving even a little bit - even during sleep. I like the undergarments better for protection, fit, comfort and convenience, but THE SIZES OFFERED ARE TOO SMALL FOR ME, personally. I just thought I'd bring this up just in case there are any other fellow "Bladder Buddies" out there that have this same challenge in personal protection and can offer any tips, tricks, hacks or advice for solutions for any of these problems.

  • Taking medication which causes frequent urination

    Hosay Jun 3 2017 7:30PM

    Hi,
    I just recently had open heart surgery, my doctor has me on Lasix. It's a pill that makes me urinate every 15 minutes and lasts for up to 6 to 7 hours.

    Which depend product would be best suited for me to wear, so I can function normally at work without having to get up to the bathroom every 15 minutes, like a coke head?

    Hopefully a diaper/underwear that allows me not use use the bathroom for up to 8 hours.

    Thanks.
    Hosay

  • Changing on the go

    MrGoose2 May 30 2017 11:30AM

    Does anyone that has IBS issues change in their cars like I have? I just would like to know I am not alone in doing this because I am not carrying around a diaper bag in stores etc. Maybe a woman with a big purse can get away with that; but would look odd for a guy to carry something like that.

  • I need help locating coupons

    Jana42784 May 30 2017 12:41AM

    I am a caregiver to both my parents. My father has had a stroke and has to use depends at all times. My mother only has to use pads at this time to manage her trouble with her kidneys. With them living on a fixed income, where can I locate the best coupons to help with this need?

  • Accepting the fact my life will never be the same

    Greg218500 May 29 2017 6:16AM

    Hello depend community I was in a terrible accident 8 months ago and has left me incontinent and needing diapers 24/7. As if this isn't a hard enough thing to adapt to I also have to wear leg braces as well I rarely leave my house now I can't get over the fact that when I go to the store or anywhere I feel as if everyone is staring at me. This is a very hard thing for me to deal with it makes me feel that I'm some kind of freak now I rarely leave my home now It's just not worth the embarrassment. Thanks for listening
