I just hope to get to a point to only use the Tena.
Yes, I did mention the Coloplast pads, which are effectively drip guards. Almost a small sock. I knew immediately that it would be a while for those to suit me.
- Coloplast Conveen 5410 Normal, 80 ml absorption. These are 10 to a pack that is about
the size of three depends.
- Coloplast Conveen again, but it isn't labeled, just larger, closer to the size of the Tena.
I got these through my local Prostate Foundation folks as samples, and since they were so far off what I needed, I didn't get all the details. I understood that they were manufacturer samples, and I can ask for more information if you want. Since I can't speak for them, don't ding me for advertising.
No web site, but they are marked made in Denmark.
Found a US website. They will send a sample. Looking online for prices, they seem very expensive.
UPDATE on 2/25 - a sample, one pack of ten of what I speculated were the larger pad arrived from Coloplast this afternoon via UPS, along with contact info for a company rep. They were the 5420 Extra 100ml absorption. That was by far the fastest any of the companies I've asked for a sample responded. Also the largest quantity - the others send one or two. On the other hand, I only find three places they carry them in a 25-mile radius, all being home medical equipment suppliers. I still get the gut feel they will be expensive, but they get a good mark for responding.
