Having to wear "those"

I'm 23 and in the hospital right now with a UC flare. I am wearing adult diapers that they issued for me....is this standard? Everyone with a UC flare end up wearing those at the hospital? I am newly diagnosed and this is my first ER visit due to UC and it sucks.

thanks.

Re: Having to wear "those"

I never had to wear them, however I have leaked many times over the years while sleeping and was mortified. I have the best boyfriend in the world, but nothing was more horrifying that waking up in anal leakage. I was 17 when I was first diagnosed and I thank goodness that I learned early. But what I learned is to wear a female menstural pad. No need to go all "adult diaper" unless it's explosive!
Hang in there, I know it's hard. I really do find joking and laughing about it no matter who I am talking to makes it a lot easier to deal with all together.
Wishing nothing but the best to you while you learn the IBD life!
Love CrohnsAndTired!
