First thing I should say is that I’m a bloke. I have been doing intermittent self catheterisation for about 15 years and have had very few infections. Just recently I had to go into A&E with what I thought was a UTI but in fact it is a problem with a sphincter in my urethra and now I am unable to insert a catheter.
At the moment I have an indwelling catheter and I am going for Cytoscopy in a couple of weeks. I have never been frightened doing ICT but I think those days might be over. Instead I think I am going to have a suprapubic catheter I would love to hear any experiences good or bad you have had with a suprapubic catheter.
I have been having Botox injections for the last couple of years, will I still be able to have them?
I look forward to hearing from you all,
