Elderly Man Visits The Doctor With Embarrassing Problem

An elderly man goes to the doctor for his yearly physical, accompanied by his wife.

When the doctor enters the examination room, he tells the elderly gentleman, “I need a urine and stool sample from you.”

Being hard of hearing, he looks at his wife and asks, “What does he want?”

His wife answers in return, “He wants your underwear.”

All joking aside incontinence presents a big problem for elderly people. Getting a physician’s advice is step one. Absent serious medical problems incontinence aids may help seniors to participate in normal activities.
