Thread: Diaper Cameltoe!!!

  1. #1

    Unhappy Diaper Cameltoe!!!

    I'm 27. I'm a t10 complete para. I'll be injured April 21, 2010. I wear a diaper & cath myself. My issue is I hate the "diaper camel toe!" It bothers me how it's noticeable when I'm sitting or standing w/ my KAFOs. I can hide it depending on what I wear. However, I would like to wear other things & look appropriate. I've noticed other paras who wear tight pants but don't seem to have my issue. Does anyone have the same problem? Please help!

    Are you taking anything for bladder spasms, such as ditropan or detrol or vesicare? These should prevent leakage.

    You might need a higher dose. Also, for many people, one drug doesn't work, while others do. I know it's difficult to deal with. Do you have a physiatrist you might talk with?

    It's something I brought up w/ my doctor. She suggested to start a journal for my bladder & record each time I cath. I'm not sure bout talking to a psychiatrist. Yes it bothers me but it's not something I'm going crazy about. I've never asked another person w/ an SCI about their bladder situation before.

    Sorry, I said physiatrist, not psychiatrist!

    A physiatrist is the type of doctor people with spinal cord injures see. He oversees our overall health. He's a physical/rehabilitation type of doc.

    haha, don't feel that way. I've made the same mistake

    I'd speak with him about trying another bladder spasm drug, or increasing your current dosage. Good luck!

    You might get more responses if this were in the Care forum.

    You might also want to get your rehab doc to refer you to a urologist who has experience dealing with neurogenic bladders.
