Just before lunch time today, a district nurse turned up at my door…I was surprised as I hadn`t arranged a visit.
She was a nurse I`d had back in my catheter days. A lovley woman.
She said my GP had called to say I was having trouble with my bowels.
We discussed the problem and she said not to let myself get so bunged up as happened last week. She advised more movicol(laxido) if I haven`t been for 2 days. And I can also call her and she will give me a small enema. It is a sachet of an irritant which makes the bowel start moving.
Funny thing…she hadn
t heard of peristeen either............maybe they dont use it in my local health authority?
She said the nurses will pop in to see me from time to time.
I think that`s good.
