My husband has MS and has for years been doing ISC with my help as he has tremors in his hands.
We make sure that we are extra careful with hygiene but yet infection have been happening on a regular basis.
My husband was on prophylaxic antibiotics for years but 3 weeks ago he was in hospital because he had E Coli in his urine and a month before that pseudomonas. The hospital where hubby was admitted said that the antibiotics should stop as a long term basis because the bugs were getting resistant to them. They also recommended that he try the Suprapubic catheter instead of the in and out of the ISC and as hubby had given it ago they thought it was now time to try something else.
The appointment has been booked for the 2nd August but having read somethings on here regarding SPC hubby may be worse off...When he is ill he is very ill and confused and temp last was 39.4C in June.
We just don't know whether to carry on and go for it, but then he is il with the ISC also.
