Hi McTexas, I am still having alot of leaking myself. I use the Depends Underguards. They slip into the front of your briefs.
When I had my cath in I was using the Belted Depends. I had to use part of a womans pas taped around the cath tube to control the leaking down the tube.
As far as the swelling, mine never got that big! Not sure what is going on there. You may want to call your Dr.
Good luck with the leaking.
