Traveling with incontinence

fandlilMarch 9, 2008

my husband has bladder control issues since he had prostate surgery to cure prostate cancer. He's got pretty good control when in bed or sitting comfortably at home or in the car, but when he's walking around, doing things around the house or whatever, he loses control and he needs to change pads every 4-5 hours.

We would like to be able to take guided tours in Europe like we used to, but he's not sure he can manage it. Is there anyone who can tell us what it's like to travel around with this problem?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Sorry you haven't gotten any replies here. You can go over to the Health Board and scroll down to the Cancer:Prostate section. Maybe the people there will be able to give you some information.

You should be able to take that trip, but you are wise to collect information ahead of time.

Good luck.
