Hi there. I’m posting on here to get other peoples experiences on sp catheter changes. I had mine fitted in July and my first change was done in hospital which seems to be the norm. I hardly felt a thing at the time and had no problems afterwards. Yesterday the district nurses came to my home to do the next change. The first nurse was having trouble removing it and though that it might be stuck to my bladder wall. The other nurse had a go and this time it was successful but it was rather uncomfortable. I was feeling very sore all evening and when I went to bed I was unable to sleep because of the pain. I took some pain killers and went into the bathroom only to faint and pass out! I’ve had a shower this morning and cleaned up the wound and it feels more comfortable now although still very sore. I’m now wondering if this is going to happen every eight weeks when it is changed. If so I’ll be dreading it!! Has anyone got any tips or had previous experience with this problem?
