Mind My P Darn Quick

Hello!
Haven't been around and not riding much partly because I need to p so often. Am taking prostate supplements. Does know of an inconspicuous bag or other possible solutions?
Thanks for the help and jokes in advance.

Depends on what you wear as to inconspicuousness.

Perhaps you should put an empty water bottle on your bike and run a catheter between your legs and down to the bottle.

If you drink a lot of coffee, tea, sodas, etc. try switching to water.

Like The Weak Link suggests-see a urologist or your family practice guy.

However, there would be a difficulty concealing the tank. Perhaps by leaving it in view I could say my bike is gasoline powered.

I live in the city where the woods and bushes were represented by paper stand ups. They have long disintegrated from the original heeders of said advice.

http://biorelief.com/stadium-pal-kit.html Maybe this would help, I totally understand your problem, no cash for doctors vist's and having to go all the time is RPIA for sure. I've had some Iron Butt motorcycle rider friends that have used this and say it works pretty good. JMHO, YMMV.

They make "incontinence pads" (like adult diapers). They are innocuous enough that I understand young guys wear them when they go gambling so that they don't have to leave the table. Drug stores have them.

Looks like this one is very good and not too expensive either.

Thanks but I think I will pass on this gamble.
But, it could be a line like, "Want to come down and see my pad?"

After my recent L4-L5 fusion and discectomy, I was going every hour, 24 hours per day. Literally. After two weeks of no sleep, I saw a urologist who prescribed "rapaflo" - that night I SLEPT.

I took rapaflo for about 2 weeks, and have been off of it for 6 days now. I am still sleeping.

Maybe this would work for you?

He was going to change me to flomax, but right now I am drug free.

I developed a side-effect of nasal congestion and sneezing from the rapaflo (about 2.5% of folks do that).

Good luck.

This is actually what I was looking for when I found the trucker's friend.

I looked for a clip of the humorist David Sedaris doing his bit on this product. Unfortunately couldn't find it. One of THE Funniest things I have ever heard.

Brings up issues to consider.
Learning from Sedaris' personal experience.
He has a peculiar sense of humor.
