Waiting for the District Nurse
Just another day of my life with MS, I am waiting for the Nurse to change my catheter. She was due on Monday but after waiting all morning my wife called the surgery and found I wasn't down for the nurse. I had been missed, half an hour later the nurse called and said she would call today. Well I am up showered and dressed and just waiting because she was slotting me in she couldn't give a time but at least it is being done. MS has messed my body up and one of the first problem areas was my bladder and the best thing I have done is having a catheter fitted. Initially I was scared of having a catheter but it made my life worthwhile again. I started out doing a self catheter but after a trip to hospital ended up with an indwelling one. All I can say is having at first been set against it I am now delighted as it has given me back my life, so if you are facing a similar problem It aint as bad as it at first seems.
