I had mentioned in an earlier thread that I had found a website to order incont. pads called attends.  The website is JustAttends.  The pads are called Attends.  Someone mentioned that they thought they were expensive.  I got a case, 4 boxes with 16 in each for just under 50.00 dollars.  Kurt says that they are 100% better than the depends for men and the serenity for men.  It is shaped like a cup and very refreshing, according to Kurt.  He had developed a bad rash from the others. Just wanted to let you all know.  I haven't compared prices to see which is the better deal.  I think if Kurt is ok, then if these cost more, than so be it.  Courtney

Hi Tony, KW and Izzy,

In comparing prices with the attend and depends, the attends are quite more pricey. However, to answer your question Tony, Kurt is down to one pad a day and only leaks when he sneezes. So, as Kurt said, the price difference is nothing compared to how much more comfortable the attends are.

KW, I had to tie Kurt down to keep him off the golf course today, even though it is freezing!!!

Hope all is well for all of you. Courtney

Keep going KW. Everyone is different. As he has the bladder under control, we are a long way from the ED going away. Can't wait to meet you and play golf. You were in my thoughts and prayers today. Courtney

Great News, Courtney. I only leaked when laughing and that's all a memory now. No pads needed. Kurt will lose them soon as well.

You kids are doing great, I hope it continues...
