    Lilypilly - which grown up undies do you mean? Like drynites or pull ups. Or do they have something a bit slimmer that doesn't look bulky. I have suggested she wearing something like that but she won't have any part in it and is afraid she'll be teased more.


    Dr has given us some antibiotics to get rid of any UTI she may have and was surprised that she had never had any tests apart from urine and ultrasound. She said there are plenty of things that can and should have been done seeings how she's been like this forever and it's not like it started because of constipation. We are to see her next week after antibiotics to talk about seeing a specialist. Think I'll go private instead of having the long wait of public.

    Someone I know with a very similar issue has received fantastic treatment through the Mars clinic in Brisbane - it's a continence clinic specifically for kids. They diagnosed a pelvic floor issue that hadn't been picked up by doctors. I just had a quick look at their website and they also have a clinic at the Gold Coast so might be worth looking at.

    Yes they are adult ones. There's an add on TV with a lady in a red dress and she strips off to show a pull up type underwear. I understand her reluctance though, maybe just a pad then?

    Your poor DD I wet through the night until I was 10 and it was terrible. It turned out I had a back issue (I think scoliosis?) that was causing it, and after seeing a chiro for a few months it stopped.

    It looks like some pps have given details of some specialist clinics, so that would be a good start.

    I was also going to suggest an incontinence pad, they have ultra thin ones for lbl that I've seen on tv. Maybe one of those during the day with 2 pairs of undies over the top to make it seem less bulky and keep it in place?

    Have you spoken to her teacher about it? Maybe getting the teacher on board to discteeetly remind her during the day and to keep any teasing in check might help.

    Best of luck with it hun.

    Hi. We ended up going to a private paediatrician at the beginning of this year. He put her on medication, tablets not the spray and within 1-2 days of taking them she was dry. She stayed on them for 6mths and has been dry ever since. It was the BEST thing! The biggest relief not just for her but for me also.

    I'm so relieved for you! Was it oxybutynin? And did she stay dry when she stopped taking the medication after six months? My daughter had Oxybutynin a few years ago but it didn't help, hoping to try it again soon though.
