    Catheter change

    Yesterday two delightful district nurses changed my catheter. I now have a snazzy orange tube that has a really cool gripping action. πŸ˜ŽπŸ€‘πŸŒŸπŸ’•xx

    How often does it need to be done? I'm sure it's a quick enough job and one you quickly get used to, like me and my feeding button changes.

    I thought you said your carers did the changes but, given your recent sandpaper bedbath experience, I'm glad kindly nurses do it 😬😬😘😘

      The carers only wash me. DN's do catheter and change every nine weeks. Takes a few minutes unless I'm lying down then there's a lot of blood involved! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ˜šπŸ˜xx

        Every 9 weeks isn't bad xx

          In total I have had a tube fed in and a balloon inflated five times. Four of them completely painless. Having it has changed my life for the better as before I was getting up to pee every hour of the night. Three cheers for the catheter! Hip Hip......😚😁🀩😍xx
