Since getting my Catheter out I have been very dry with no need for any pads. I have been wearing boxer's. Yesterday I didn't have any clean boxers so put on a pair of briefs. I started having leakage! After about
6 hours of this I did some laundry and then switched back to the boxer's. I'm curious if any one else has experienced this. I'm assuming that the leakage might have been caused from some pressure since the briefs are more tight fitting. I stopped at the store last night and picked up some more boxers. Today has been dry once again with no problems.
