    If you haven't already got one I highly recommend that you seriously consider getting one. It's the best thing that's happend to me since diagnosis. I admit I was having nightmares before having it but I was so wrong. πŸ‘πŸ˜˜πŸ˜„πŸ˜xx

    Glad it's working out well for you.

    Is it the community nurse who changes it or who? xx

          would a catheter be better than these conveen things?

            I think Conveens are best for occasional use, an indwelling or suprapubic catheter is best for full-time catheterisation. xx

                          Well I did it! A success! Had to cut it off with scissors. Nothing like trying to read the instructions while holding a bag of pee. I have tallents I never knew existed. πŸ˜†

                            Another accomplishment πŸ‘πŸ‘

                            And the verdict on the device? Held fluid without leaking, comfy on Stephen? xx

                              Yes good idea. Bit weird putting it on. Didn't leak. He didnt complain. Bit worried as a stand wasn't provided and the bed's quite high. I was dubious about him moving about and pulling it off but when it came to taking it off i can see its not easy to remove. Just need to be careful with the scissors 😈
