    anyone using the male urine guards?
    paulbronson posted:
    Hey guys,

    I am still recovering from prostate surgery, but my urinary incontinence has lessened quite a bit in the past month. I am thinking about switching from an external cath to these male urine guards from Jackson Medical (who I've never heard of). I guess because they are so new there isn't much written about them. I read this positive review on this condom catheter site, but am trying to get more feedback. They are not terribly expensive, but right now I am still out of work and am trying to be careful about any purchases.

    Sorry for the ramble. I am hoping someone is using these or has used them and can post a bit about their experience. I am just trying to avoid wasting money if they don't work very well.

    Hello Paulbronson and thanks for posting. We have several male board members who post--I hope one of them will see your post and reply to you.

    You may also want to post on the Prostate Cancer or Men's Health communites if you haven't done that as well. Also, perhaps you can call your surgeon's office and find out if it's something the doctor has found useful for his or her patients?

    Best wishes,

    Hey Bryoney,

    Thanks, I will try and post to the prostate cancer side as well.

    I hope someone on this board will still post their experience with the male guard, too.

    I just started using the Male Urine Guard and I really like it. I have also spoken with customer service at Jackson Medical and they were very helpful. Right now you can order a free sample from them and see if you like the product. That is what I did. Just visit their website at
    paulbronson replied to Billy328's response:
    @billy328 - thanks I will do that! I tried that in the past with a few places, but they wanted so much information (insurance, etc), I guess I quit thinking about the sample route.
