Self catheterisation....

Self catheterisation anyone? Can I ask that question?

I have stupid stupid bladder and constant UTI. I had my review with my doctor today and suffering my second UTI in less then 2 months, its just ongoing.

I had a scan of my bladder some months back and it showed my bladder was not emptying properly. I tried a few exercises to try and help but it doesnt seem to be working.

Now my doctor has advised perhaps i should try SC. I am now waiting to see specialist incontinence nurse to discuss the options.

I have to say i am bricking it the thought of having to do that is kind of making my eyes sore lol…

Just wonder if anyone would share their experiences by PM. I need to do something as I am exhausted getting up constantly to the toilet.

I will PM you Goldengirl. Honestly though you soon get the hang of it. I took about 3 times to find the area that the water comes out and once I found it it was easy. Once I SC I am safe for hours.

Thank you hun I have sent you a mesage back.x

Hi there, I know ISC sounds scary and difficult, but it is actually super easy. It will make such a difference to your life. It takes a bit of practice at first, but once you get the hang of it, it will become part of your daily routine, just like brushing your teeth. If you have any questions, please feel free to pm me, love Bex xxx
