Young and incontinent

Hi. I'm new here. I've been doubly incontinent for the past 8 years. I'm in my early twenties and sometimes I feel upset that I don't have the bodily control I had. I feel too young to be using diapers as my toilet. Honestly I don't remember what it is like to use the toilet. I don't mean to sound negative but sometimes I'm ok with my situation. Is there anyone here who is young and incontinent?

Re: Young and incontinent

I am not young any more but I began experiencing incontinence issues when I was in my twenties as well. I was embarrassed, horrified and hated being in public. I tried medication for several years and it worked okay but I eventually underwent a surgical procedure using a mesh sling to lift the bladder and urethra as my own ligaments had failed and it has made an amazing difference. I would suggest that you speak to your doctor. My procedure was an outpatient procedure that took about 45 minutes I was back at work the next day and I was able to return to exercising two weeks later.

Wow! That sounds good. What kind of difference are you talking about? Any ideas for the bowels?

I'm 40 and have been double incont. for four years and likely from here on out. I don't toilet and wear adult briefs all the time - almost always with two pairs of plastic pants to block odor. It's very embarassing and expensive. Killed my sex life - of course.
