My husband is mid 70’s and is ‘dribbling’ below. It’s embarrassing, the tell-tale trouser spots. All the underwear for this seems not only expensive but visually unappealing. Is there a specialist supplier, or is there some sort of iron-on, washable, absorbent fabric with liquid-proof backing?

      I’m not sure about underwear but has your husband had prostate examination lately?
      There may be a reason for the condition that his GP could help with.

      Your gp should be able to refer you to an incontinence nurse who can prescribe pads for your husband free of charge.

      Age UK have a website for incontinence products. The products are all shapes and sizes depending on the degree of incontinence. Some will send you free samples too.
      I can find a link for you, if you’re interested.

      look I,m talking from my own experience here I,m 77 and extremely obese, what has helped is I sit down on loo for every thing once I,ve passed my water I sit a little longer and let excess liquid drain away it takes a little patience and when your out same thing and carry tea wipes with you to freshen up the area afterwards[bin wet wipes after use or they will block main drains eventually} this as I say works for me its an idea for you to try.good luck.

      Tesco do a Tenna for men. It is not expensive, but it is worth seeing a Doctor in case.

      My husband is incontinent too. He has support from the incontinence team in our area who supply pads of varying strengths free of charge. Why not approach your GP and get support. We bought some stretch thins pants to hold his pad from Tena and it is undetectable and easy to change. Wipes any other incontinence aids are also supplied free of charge from Nightingale telephone 0800318559. Give them a call and they will help you.

      I was prescribed diuretics some years ago which means I urinate very frequently. I have to plan ahead so that I’m not away from the loo once I’ve taken my drugs [sorry, medication]

      I’m not really sure but I think it reduces the inflammation of the prostate, of course it doesn’t work as quickly as a drug would but neither does it have adverse effects which is my main reason for using it. I reiterate it works for me!
