I just wanted to post this as too many of us with MS have continence issues and it’s the biggest taboo in the country apart from death! I have been using the peristeen system for about 5 months and although there has been an occasional hiccup (nothing is 100% effective) it has given me back some of the confidence I had lost. I should point out that there are other systems that work similar to this but I ended up with this one.
I think MS is worst when it takes away your dignity and people don’t understand this when it’s not happening to them and bowels are probably one of the hardest areas to deal with. The system looks a bit scary but it’s worth trying if you have continence problems, I use mine everyday and it only take about 15 minutes in the morning.
I just wanted to share this as I’m a 31 year old with two small children and I work too therefore life can’t stop for me even when s**t happens, literally as well as metaphorically! We don’t talk about this stuff enough but it’s a horrible part of MS and it really needs shouting about so people don’t feel alone.
Sorry just wanted to share my experience and hope it helps others.
