Today we went to the clinic to c the continence nurse , hubby not really wanting this at all . So nurse and offsides talked to him reason why catheterisation is good for him . Hubby worry was because he thought he had to keep catheter in all time . Once he set his fears aside was ok to try the catheter . So he had to p in a bowl shape of a hat , then his pee was measured 150mil , then I was allowed to insert the catheter in him and he passed 450mil of urine that had been still left in the bladder , a huge amount . They supplied us with a bag of info and catheters to take home . The bag was blue in colour and had a picture of a teddy bear outline on the front , and on the back of the bag was an outline of teddys penis with a catheter inserted . Hubby proudly walked out with his bag pass all the other patients like it was Xmas !!
We then met his brother and wife for lunch spent about two half hours with them , hubby was so happy he didn't have to dash off for a pee . In fact it was close to four hrs before he went again freely without the catheter . So tomorrow if we go out for a while he has to pee naturally and measure it , then catherise measure it , write it down on a record sheet to show nurse next month , and use one before he goes to bed .
I am so pleased for him , thought it was going to b a struggle to get him to try this , but he ok with it , after reading other people posts it needed full time eventually so hubby can at least get used to them .
Plus he liked the little tickle I gave him !! Ha ha naughty girl I know
