Im a permanent wheelchair user but I’m able to pull up on sink and stand just about! To get my knickers and leggings down to self cath. I’m now having problems where everything goes dead from waist down and I can’t guarantee I can stand… this has happened while out…hmmm.
I don’t have continence issues and don’t get up in the night (stop liquids early eve) but I’m now going round with no knickers on and having to wear loose on the knee dresses so I can pull it aside (sorry guys).
im in despair as it’s not practical to go round like this, and my ms continence nurse is suggesting SP (she’s about as enthusiastic ad I am I think because I’ve only been self cath for two years and the problems are greater).
i do not want to wear a bag, and neither do I want to give up leggings etc for baggy jogging bottoms - jeans look terrible now and involve buttons and zips.
i just feel the SP is drastic as im not incontinent (I’m a retainer), and I feel angry and worried… My partner is going away for a month so I may have falls attempting stands that we normally use a standing aid for when my legs go dead.
any advice on Sp, clothes, or just go with the pant less! Winter is a coming…
