They are going to remove the catheter and see what happens!hmm

I feel as though I am going to sit an exam, if I manage to be able to go to the loo, then they are going to keep me in over night for observation and encouragement, if nothing happens, then I have to start self cathetering againsad!!!!(I'm so not happy with that)

So please please everyone keep your fingers crossed that all goes well.

and all because I had a minor op on my bladder and then got an infection!shock Its been a very long three and a half months!

I'm home!

Was really fed up and cheesed off as they took my catheter away and everytime I sat on the loo, NOTHING, 20 mins (approx) I would wet myself,

WELL the good news is...........................................................

Since being home, although I am still wetting myself, I HAVE WEE'D ON THE TOILETshock

grin shock grin shock grin shock

I'm just so excited, it was only little and I havent managed another one, but it shows there is still some hope!

bookthief Thu 20-Sep-07 14:19:12

That's good news. Not that you're wetting yourself but that things are looking brighter iykwim!

directline Thu 20-Sep-07 14:32:30

Yes, it is in a funny kind of way - I think!

Just seems strange that its good news for wetting myself!hmm At least my bladder is working somehow!grin

Pinkchampagne Thu 20-Sep-07 16:07:10

Well I'm glad to hear things are kind of improving, DL. Lets hope you have a normal strong bladder soon, and when you jump on that trampoline without wetting yourself, you will know it's all been worth it!!wink

directline Thu 20-Sep-07 17:37:33

Havent been able to wee sincesadHad lots of accidents thou, Have spoken to my line manager about not going in tomorrow, feel really guilty, but what can you do when you have no control and you have to keep going to the loo every 15 mins!sad

NoNameToday Thu 20-Sep-07 17:58:04

Don't really know your full problems directline, but you have my sympathy and my good luck wishes.

Just don't go peeing yourself with the excitement of having the catheter removed...

directline Thu 20-Sep-07 17:59:11

Thanks nonametoday, I dont think I'm that excited!wink

Budababe Thu 20-Sep-07 18:00:33

Sounds like a step in the right direction. Not sure of your story but best wishes!!!

Pinkchampagne Thu 20-Sep-07 18:00:35

I'm sure A understood, DL. You can't attempt work just yet.

directline Thu 20-Sep-07 18:03:56

That should read go to the loo every 45mins (not 15!)

You should have seen the supplies they have sent me home with - 40 huge nappies, loads of inco pads, and loads of those netted knickers(which is quite good as I only had 3prs and had to keep washing them out!)

Mind you I wish I didnt need them, its like potty training all over again, this time its me!sad
