    That was Bill until about a couple of months ago! He was a bit of a Houdini. For some reason that has all calmed down.

    We still don't have the problem of which Tena product for him. None of them are really brilliant for him.

    Claud have you had a chat with someone from the local continence clinic? They might be able to suggest something.

    Hello claud, my hubby has been wetting at night bed and carpet, he does get to the toilet but has done it befor he has got there, l bought padded washable pants from age uk they are wonderful the same as jockey pants which my hubby wears, so he doesn't know any difference. No more wet bed or carpets, they hold up to 1/2 pint of urine. Hope this will help you ☺

    Hello Claud.
    My Mum has the same problem although more often lately she keeps her disposable pants on.
    She still seems to wet the bed though. Im wondering if theres anything different i could try which wont leak?

    If you find something that never leaks, please let us know. That's why people buy waterproof mattress covers and Kylie sheets, because pads mostly aren't enough in the night.

    I use the Tena flex maxi for Bill. It is a belted all in one product and one is supposed to last him all night. It is supposed to hold 2100ml. My experience is that the front of the product absorbs a lot of urine then instead of the rest absorbing along the length of the product it somehow gets out and soaks up the sides and around the belt. The continence clinic even got the lady from Tena (the Tena lady!:rolleyes:) to come to the house and see how we were fitting it. I've no idea why this happens to Bill as according to her it doesn't happen to others! They want me to use the euro dome things on him but he pulls these off and there's a bigger mess.

    I'm gathering strength to contact the clinic again and tell her the pads are not working for him.

    This is the absorbency table for Tena products -

    This is what the flex looks like -
