Hi all, Just wanted to post with something good. I have recently had really dreadful bladder problems, including back-to-back UTIs, terrible retention, hesitancy etc, so that I was taking 20-30 mins to pee, as well as causing terrible pain in my legs because of all I had to do to go. Anyway, this morning a continence nurse came to show me ISC. Not only was she really wonderful but this procedure is going to change everything and give me my life back, I can tell. I managed the procedure well the first time with her help holding the mirror and jug etc. It probably will be harder on my own I expect but I am feeling quite confident atm. Sorry anyone who is squeamish about such things but I am a happy bunny this afternoon (for the first time in months). Teresa xx
s lovely teresa. Not the thought of you with the catheter, jug and mirror (what have we come to?), but due to the fact that youve found some peace and a way to sort out a very awkward personal problem.
Good for you.
So pleased for you Teresa!
I have an American book of emails of group of women with MS. Couple of them say they DID get their life back using catheter. Good for you hon!!!
Thanks guys I told the nurse - I never thought I would be happy about doing such a thing but I am overjoyed atm. Teresa xx
