  • Real fits and TSA

    Roberts109 Dec 24 2016 1:43PM

    Hi,
    Does anyone have any solid experience about trying to go through TSA wearing Real Fit underpants. I have a very early flight coming up and suspect I will sleep on the plane. I don't want to have a problem if I get scanned. I also don't want to fall asleep and pee my pants on the plane. I don't want to make a big deal out of it as I am traveling with people I don't know all that well. Any advice will be very appreciated.

    I had a robotic radical prostatectomy on November 9. I had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in August 2013, but in July 2016, I was told I finally had to do something about it. I chose surgery because of a situation involving my older brother, who passed away October 2015, from surgical complications related to his prostate cancer. My paternal grandfather, father and an older cousin related on my paternal side also have or have had cancer. However none has died of the disease. My grandfather lived to be 95, my father lived to be 85 and my cousin is 72. I will be 67 in February.

    I decided to look into the Depends product line because of things I had heard from my urologist, from other men with prostate cancer who had chosen either surgery or radiation and from things I had read on-line. I was rather surprised when I went onto the Depends website to request product samples that I was not asked why I was interested in receiving product samples. Also, I had to go back to the site several times to request samples of all of the products listed, the briefs, the underwear and the different pads. I couldn't request one or two of each all at one time. I never have needed such products before, so am interested in discovering which one will work best for me. No one else can tell me that, their product experience is personal to them.

    As someone who had been in the marketing profession for about half my adult life, I also view it as an opportunity to find out more about a potential customer and, potentially, build a long-term relationship with them. I realize that is part of the objective of the support groups, but I suspect those people are farther along in their search than I am and that many of them already are loyal Depends customers. Maybe I need something other than the samples I requested. Maybe those will be good for me somewhere down the road. Maybe Kimberly-Clark staff could recommend something else. But they don't know that because they don't know everything there is to know about me and my situation.

    I think the web-site should be changed to allow people to explain why they are visiting the site and asking for samples -- not a requirement, just an opportunity. Also, make it easier to request all of the samples at one time, if that is what the visitor is interested in.

    Sincerely,


    John K. Small

  • Husband bedwetting support

    EmilyWesch190 Oct 12 2016 10:57AM

    My husband started wetting the bed in his late 30's and it has been tough on him, emotionally and obviously physically. At first he lost many nights of sleep until he started wearing protection. He was extremely unhappy about having to wear diapers to sleep at a young age but the 'real fit' mens briefs helped ease the stigma. Obviously he had all the necessary medical tests done and he has no issues. We were explained that it is simply a bladder/neurological problem where his brain does not alert him to wake up and use the bathroom so he releases the urine in his sleep. He now has to sleep in a diaper every night and usually wakes up in the middle of the night to change because it is wet.

    I am not sure if there is some way to get him out of the diapers to have dry nights again. It seems that once the bedwetting started a few months ago, it persisted. We visited the doctor again and there is nothing he can recommend besides adequate protection at night. His doctor also told us that it is a more common problem than people believe to be since no one talks about it openly. Still it's tough for my husband to deal with but he has been better since we started talking about it and he started wearing protection at night so we don't have to change sheets or anything like that. He has accidents almost every night and certainly cannot go to sleep without a diaper on or we will wake up to a wet bed.

    I am hoping that one day wearing the briefs is not necessary any longer so I was wondering if any male has had a similar experience. How do you cope? Is it ongoing? Anything that your significant other can do to help ease the new experience of having to wear a diaper every night? It is also difficult for him when we go on trips because we have to make sure that we pack enough of his diapers and he is afraid of anyone knowing about it.

  • Stalinist editing of responses

    BeenThereDoneThat Sep 29 2016 11:05PM

    I am done with this place. I can't count the times my responses have been deleted or masked, or whatever you do.

    I try to help people, and later on I see no response.

    I wish your company luck in approaching the adult male incontinent community.

  • Augmenting Wetting Protection for Guys Who Pee A Lot

    BeenThereDoneThat Sep 23 2016 2:46AM

    I was just wondering if KC might consider a couple ideas:

    1. Men's enhanced products (more enhanced than now) for guys, both in the pull on line, and also in the 3 tape Depends line that have more stuff in the front. My buddy I was taking care of, I used every Depends thing there was and I noticed he was wetting his jeans and whispered "YOU'RE KILLING ME, WE GOTTA CHANGE".

    2. Plastic pants. It would be a lot easier if we could grab them at WallMart with the other stuff. I had to get them somewhere else for my buddy. But it was better than seeing him wet his jeans.

    I know you guys are trying your best. But as a user, and a caregiver, a lot of us may have experiences that might be of help to you in product development.

  • Don't know what to do

    prayingmantis74 Sep 5 2016 9:20AM

    I don't know what to do. I work as a janitor at a school. The other day, i came into the office, and it smelled horrible! i went to the back where the trash cans are, and saw a co-worker of mine, stashing something in the garbage. I asked him what it was, and he was very evasive and kept trying to change the subject. Than another day, it happened again, really bad smell, only this time, i caught a glimpse of what he had in the bag he was throwing out. It was a pair of men's briefs with a large BM in them! So now i know that he is soiling in his underwear. I have wrote about this co-worker before, and how he needs help with wetting, but i fear soiling may be beyond what depends can do for him. Also, he is kind of a tough guy, so i can never really get him to talk about it. He only says "oops i guess i had an accident, no big deal" and then changes the subject. One day i got frustrated, looked at him, and said: This is a very big deal! Your a grown man who poops in his pants! you've got to do something about your problem!" after that outburst, he won't talk to me at all! Can anyone please give me some advice on how to approach this? i know he wants help, but he is not going to just come out and say it.

    This is nonsense, it makes it impossible for us to post or interact. Good job.
