Having urinary, fecal incontinent, wear cloth diapers, plastic pants. Permanent cure?

Hi, I am both urinary and fecal incontinent and I wear cloth diapers and plastic pants, my wife thinks that when I go in to the hospital for a procedure, of any kind, they will remove my pants and diapers and there will be no further need for that kind of protection while in the hospital, I just fine that hard to believe, could you settle this dispute for us. Thank You.....Rob

Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

I would like to start off by saying you have a very concerned and loving wife, who only wishes for you to live a non-dependant life and nothing less.

Well now, coming to your query. If you indeed get hospitalized for a procedure, the doctor's advises would be as follows:
1. Urine incontinence: A urinary catheter can be placed, which would be attached to a urine bag on the other end and would drain the urine directly from the urinary bladder externally into the bag

2. Fecal incontinence: In such a scenario, usually a diaper is advised, but in the presence of a urinary catheter, the diaper would either be replaced with laxatives and a regular attendant to help you with a bed pan, or the urinary catheter would be completely avoided and an adult diaper would still be advised.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for, and this information solves the dispute. Wishing you and your wife a long and happy life, with no disputes what so ever. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications at: . I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
