    Thanks to everyone for your input. It seems itโ€™s just another thing to learn to live with.

    Richard,

    When I could still stand I used to lean with my shins against the toilet bowl and one hand on a wall.

    Now that Iโ€™m in a wheelchair all day I use a bottle with a long tube and a funnel (I think truck drivers use them).

    I also use conveen catheters when I go out (not that Iโ€™ve been out for many months).

    Andy

    Sorry for looking at a men only thread ! I couldn't resist it ... its like being told not to look out of the window. What's the first thing you do ?

    I don't know if this is any help Richard. When I was still walking my son got me a frame from Amazon to fit round his loo to help me get up. You could use this in your downstairs toilet so you could sit down and put it away when not in use.

    Love Debbie x

    [QUOTE=Ellie;n37449]My dear mate Terry used an old fabric conditioner bottle - wide necked, good capacity and a big wide handle!!

    Our dear friend TC was always inventive and I remember the canister of water hanging from his walker.

    There is a hand rail and a radiator I can hold onto but of course I can only use one of them at a time๐Ÿ˜‚

    Well there are no secrets on this site๐Ÿ˜‚ Barry52 I do use a urine bottle at night and empty it into the streeet in the morning like in the Middle Ages. ( Iโ€™ll let you work out which part of that sentence is untrue ๐Ÿค”)

    jd58 I have a Closamat fancy loo (Washer dryer) upstairs with arms and a stairlift to get upstairs. The downstairs loo is nearer and we want it to be as normal(?) as possible. There is a hand rail and a radiator I can hold onto but of course I can only use one of them at a time๐Ÿ˜‚

    Spare a thought for us wheelchair using girls - even a Shewee requires almost as much hassle as a trip to the loo.

    Same here Barry52. It's just easier and less risky than walking to the bathroom. I'm going to have the same problem as richard at some point though.
