It had been discovered that I was not emptying my bladder. During the consultation I was told that I should learn to self catheterise!!! Somewhat of a shock, but a lovely nurse instructed me in the art and I went home with instructions and equipment.
I found it impossible and found myself becoming low and depressed. I spent hours struggling. I phoned the hospital and was told to persevere and not to panic.
I persevered and things got worse. Fortunately a lovely lady phoned from the continence service. I told her all about my difficulties and she understood totally! What a relief!!! She arranged for a lady to visit me at home and help me.
Liz Beckett arrived the next day and the whole senario changed. She listened, understood and with great patience showed me how - I haven't looked back!!
