Bit of a gross post...sorry.... My dad, up until now has been ok continence-wise...maybe a couple of wees when he couldn't get to the loo in time. But, over the last 10 days, he's had three incidences of really awful diarrhoea..and didn't get there in time. It's not a bug, as he feels fine, and has normal bowel movements in between these episodes (and does get there in time). He's due to go to the hospice tomorrow, but we're wondering whether to send him in case it happens again- but he really, really wants to go and would be so disappointed if he has to miss it. Does anyone have any tips of what sort of incontinence products would work in these circumstances please? He's not had an assessment yet, I will ask the hospice tomorrow, but wondering whether I can get hold of anything tomorrow morning to send him in to ease my mom's worry about the whole thing. I thought that PSP symptoms tended more towards the constipation side of things, so not sure if this is a sign of progression or a new food intolerance perhaps. But I know my poor mom is struggling to deal with it!
