I suffer from urge incontinence, not all the time, but most mornings. I have an over active bladder and I take medication for that which helps but hasn’t completely resolved it and my bladder doesn’t empty fully. I’ve so far resisted self catheterising and I’ve been lucky never to have had an infection and my kidney function is normal.
However, I can deal with soggy pads at home, away from home is more problematic, so I’m wondering, if I self catheterise ( I’m not sure my fingers are nimble enough) will it help with urgency and/or frequency?
I have an appointment with the continence nurse on Monday and I’m thinking of telling her I’ll do it.
Any comments/advice welcome please. Thanks x
