Re: foly catheter

Hi Dave,

I'm sorry to hear you've been struggling with this, it must be so difficult to have the constant feeling of needing a wee! Have you asked your continence nurse if there's something they can prescribe to reduce the needing a wee sensation?

I hope someone in the community who has gone through something like this will be able to give you more specific advice of what may help, in the meantime do keep on at your GP and incontinence nurse and let them know how uncomfortable you are.

It's hard but try and keep focused on it only being temporary and of course we're here to support you along the way.

Hope to hear you're doing better really soon,
