i`ve had 3 difficult days and not been visiting here.
friday I had the mother of menopausal dizzy dos. It wiped me out totally…horrible things…10 years I
ve been having them now. GP has offered hrt, but I dont want that, as I know they can increase the risk of breast cancer. When I was 31 (eons ago) I had a pre-cancer of the cervix, so thats why I dont want to try hrt.
Yesterday my spc collecting bag somehow sealed itself where the pipe goes into it. This caused a pressure build up in my bladder, which spasmed and by-passed, so I wet myself. What a strange feeling that was…very uncomfortable too. So we put a new bag on.
Mid morning today, there was a little blood clot in the tube and it blocked, so I had another bladder spasm, but didnt wet myself. It may have come from the bladder puncture site. It is 2 and a half weeks since the spc op.
I have been using night bags all the time, they have a very long tube and hubby says they coil too much and gravity cant be achieved properly. So I have a small bag attached to my catheter now and it seems okay.
Think I`ll ring district nurse tomorrow and ask for advice.
Hope tomorrow is better…I have a visit from a rep re the clos-o-mat toilet.
