Underpads for Incontinence After Prostate Surgery

Urinary incontinence is the loss of the ability to control urination (peeing). Urinary incontinence sometimes occurs in men who've had prostate surgery.

If you’ve had prostate surgery, you might experience stress incontinence, which means you might leak urine when you cough, sneeze or lift something that is heavy. This happens because of stress or pressure on the bladder. 

There is also a type of incontinence that is called urge incontinence. When this happens, you are hit with a sudden need to urinate right away and have leakage before you can make it to the bathroom.


Underpads have become the standard in long-term and senior home care facilities, hospitals, and homes to protect mattresses and furniture from damage and reduce linen laundry. 

Made from a soft and breathable polymer material, these disposable underpads protect the skin as it effectively absorbs moisture and provides a quick-dry sanitary surface. The smooth finish eliminates friction to avoid skin irritation, rashes, or any other related injuries. 

You can use disposable underpads in the same way hospitals and nursing homes have used them for years or you can get creative and use them to solve a lot of household issues. They absorb liquid and with a waterproof backing, they keep the area under the pad clean and dry.
