Diapers are fine to use as long as it's used in a way to encourage him to use the bathroom instead and not as a punishment. Also, giving him a watch with an alarm to let him know every 3 hours to go use the restroom is a good idea.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
