  1. So much I gathered, thus my saying I wouldn't comment his posts further

    My sphincter part 1

    Flomax is actually a trade name for tamsulosin. Tamsulosin is OTC in several countries such as UK. In a normal healthy person you won't notice much if any "interesting" effects. I agree that a stent (after really doing your homework) is probably a better idea than pills.

    Bedwetter in Training

    Many factors influence urine output, ranging from how salty you have been eating, exertion, several medications, temperature, and obviously fluid intake. In a healthy adult, if normally hydrated (pale straw coloured urine), increasing water intake over the last 2 hours before bedtime is unlikely to cause stomach aches, and should result in fairly copious urine output by bedtime. The idea is to go to bed with an empty bladder, and be quickly, deeply sleeping and relaxed thanks to the ethanol's sedative effect by the time the bladder is full. Actual optimal water intake needed will vary depending on body weight and composition, and can only be ascertained through personal experimentation. Please note this "optimisation" is strongly discouraged for people with hypertension, diabetes, renal insufficiency, or any other disease where homeostasis is already compromised. As with anything else involving "hacking" your body's intricate balance and systems, do your research and go gradual.

    Bedwetter in Training

    Same experience here. I found that especially if really tired from a double shift at work, long bike ride (over 150km) or extra-intense workout, a few glasses of wine or beer will induce an accident. First time this happened I was fortunately diapered (Depends with a Huggies booster at the time). Waking up with a clearly wet, swollen diaper I couldn't believe it, and the mix of confusion, shame and delight at the same time was quite intense. The main thing is to not overdo it, I found that just getting a bit buzzed (far from really drunk) does it. And for obvious reasons, it's not for everyone, nor for every night. Prehydrating also helps. Drink enough water over 1-2 hours to get your pee clear, then have the beer/wine, and go to bed right away. Some other folks in this forum have reported success with sleeping pills, but I would steer clear of that. Especially if mixed with alcohol the results can be unpredictable and potentially way too dangerous for "recreational" use. Plus many sleeping pills are now increasingly linked with increases in mortality rates from cancer and other causes.
  5. BabyKeiff, I believe you are well intentioned but misinformed. I have treated folks with pneumothorax, and it's really not as you seem to understand. In the type of pneumothorax that will kill you fast (tension pneumothorax), air gets in the chest cavity via a wound and gets trapped between the inner chest wall and the lung itself, thus preventing full lung inflation. Each breath makes it worse, and you die unless treated quickly. If fluid got in the chest and prevented breathing that would normally be blood, known as haemothorax, not urine. If you die from internal bleeding it usually is from the hypovolemic shock, not suffocation. I won't comment the medical science (or lack of - actually) in your posts further beyond also stating that if you mix up ureters and urethra it's a bad start when trying to instruct people about bladder (dys)function. BTW people who chronically can't drain their bladders and keep high intravesical pressures (such as some paraplegics with neurogenic bladder) will end up with many issues, thus the importance of regular self-cathing, stents, or other procedure. It's not a good idea to mess with your body too much.
  6. The Quattros are my favourite as well. Just thick enough you know they are there, yet very unobtrusive and comfy. And they work really well. That's the closest you will get to an adult version of the modern Pampers or Huggies. I did find that they need to be "helped" to reach maximum performance, adding a tight fitting Gary Active PUL on top to ensure the top opening will stay snug, and possibly depending on your sex and anatomy a snug stretchy brief to finish things off and make sure you keep pointing down if male.
  7. Actually, the ureterovesical junction (where the ureters enter the bladder) has a valve-like function that protects the kidneys from reflux. The more the bladder stretches from being full, the more the ureters get stretched on the roof of the bladder, and the tighter they are shut. Normally, unless there is a mechanical obstruction in the urethra or severe chronic spasms (as in bladder dissynergia), you won't be able to reach pressures high enough to either backflow in the kidneys or rupture the bladder. You would eventually get an uncontrollable urge to urinate. By the way, urine is not really "caustic", nor able to cause the damage you describe. Urinary bladder trauma is fairly common in car crashes, shootings. The bladder being torn usually is one of the lesser issues, and not in itself associated with major complications. Bladder tears usually heal well. I would suggest you check your facts before expounding pseudo-medical babble that is wildly inaccurate.

    Doubling up

    Yes, I used to use Huggies in the old green plastic Depends, and later Goodnites in Tranquility ATNs. I would tear off the sides (grab at the leak guards), and poke holes in the waterproof membrane with a sharp knife. Worked great and cheap. Now I either use NorthShore boosters in the ATNs, or most of the time Seni Quattro for which no booster is needed.

    In search of new diapers

    I second (third actually!) the Seni Quattro recommendation. They are my current nighttime favorite, very comfortable, quite thin, yet absorb well even for a belly sleeper - no leaks ever if worn with a Gary Active PUL pant that makes the top very snug. BTW wholesalepoint has the best price I have found in USA.

    XP Medical - Ownership Change

    Used to order my Senis from XP. Now I use WholesalePoint. Faster and quite a bit cheaper. They also carry Abena etc.

    Stent questions

    That's interesting, how did you size it? The Spanner is designed to relieve urinary retention due to excessive prostate enlargement, and normally allows for voluntary urination since it doesn't impede the external urinary sphincter's function. Please elaborate?
  12. That medication (like most antipsychotics) has indeed sexual dysfunction and libido decrease as known side effects. If you are on depot antipsychotics you likely tried several shorter acting medications before settling on this specific one. So it's quite possibly the one that was the least bad... This one (paliperidone) has incontinence anecdotally reported only. Some other antipsychotics such as clozapine cause it more frequently (but are far more dangerous than the one you take). Aside from that, I can't really add anything to YeOldeDiaper's very knowledgeable and relevant answer. I also wish you well.

    Where do wellness briefs stand?

    The Superio (not the original) is great for daytime wear. Very discreet and comfy, absorbs a lot for its thickness. It's better IMHO than Abena because the Welness is more supple, and the padding is arranged in a way that minimises overall bulk, as compared to the Abenas that have uniform thickness.

    Tranquility ATN

    I have used ATN for years. I bought a case about a year ago (now using Seni) and at the time the quality was unchanged. Still a good value, and pretty effective if you add a booster.
  15. Sexual side effects are a valid reason to explore alternative medications with your psychiatrist. You don't need to get in the details. There are several classes of antipsychotics, with differing side effect profiles. It's common at the start of therapy to have to try different molecules, reduce dosage but add another molecule, and so on. Which antipsychotic are you currently taking?
