Embarrassing topic


9 months ago my husband had surgery on his prostate. Since the operation he has been suffering with light incontinence and uses a pad to absorb leaks. We have never discussed this openly but I buy them for him at the supermarket upon request (I do the groceries usually) so he is not hiding this issue which I am grateful for. The problem is that on most days there is a strong smell of urine on him and I really don’t know the best way to approach that conversation…. I don’t know why it is so difficult for me to tell him about this. I worry that his friends and colleagues at work may also smell it too.
