Dr Catherine. I have gotten to the point where I no longer feel safe wearing normal underwear. I have far to many accidents, both day and night, and require adult sized nappies. I often have large flows and excrete large and sloppy poos. I am self conscious about wearing bulky diapers and do not want anyone to notice my adult diaper out in public. Might you know of an appropriate product ? That is comfortable and has tabs on the side so I can put my diaper on lying down ? Please help as I require immediate protection. I hope to hear from you soon.

Dear Ben, If you have outgrown DryNites you might like to consider products that have been designed for adults, many of which are available online or through your local Chemist. I would recommend that you contact the Continence Association of Australia (1800 330 066) who will be able to recommend an appropriate product. You can also use this opportunity to speak with one of their continence nurse advisors who can discuss with you what treatment options you have tried in the past and perhaps recommend something new to try or refer you to someone in your area who can help you to achieve nighttime continence. Regards, Dr Cathrine
