When I was transferred from the hospital to a long term care facility I had a catheter in because of the Lasix I was on. When my urine output became more manageable I asked to have the catheter removed; I was still having issues getting to the potty chair because I had to wait for a nurse or aide to help me (per the facilities rules). That was when they said I needed to wear an "absorbent undergarment" or in other words, an adult diaper. Nothing can really prepare you to hear that or to have someone slide one under you and fasten the tabs on the side. Once you are in one of these, good luck trying to get yourself out without having scissors handy. The material on the inside of the diaper bunches up and clumps even if it is completely dry. It is completely conspicuous when you have clothes on because you see every clump and bulge of the absorbent material that's supposed to be even and flat. I never really had a complete urine release when wearing one of these; they were used to help with leaks and when I couldn't get to the potty chair in time.
