Hello, my husband is diabetic and last year his bladder stopped functioning. He had surgery to insert a supra pubic catheter to drain urine from his bladder. We have a timeshare in Mexico, and love to swim in the resort pools. We have been advised that my husband should NOT swim in a public pool because of the chance of infection. The pool is a big part of our vacation, and I am looking for a way to protect and waterproof the site. I had contacted a maker of dry suits to see if I could get a custom made swimsuit liner, but I did not receive a response. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
