and who decides how much is too often?
I’m on medication for an over active bladder, but it doesn’t empty fully, so I’ve been self catheterising since last July. I still suffer urge incontinence though. For my comfort and convenience I do it around six times a day. The continence nurse is ok with that, my GP seems ok with it, or at least he’s never said anything to the contrary, but now the pharmacist attached to the surgery says I’m using too many catheters. I don’t waste any now I can get the spot first time every time.
Presumably it’s a cost issue. So, how many is too many, and who decides? It’s my bladder, surely it should be me.
