My husband's now got a catheter - since July - due to an enlarged prostate. He's been told that prostate surgery will be pretty pointless as due to PD, he will be highly likely to be incontinent after it. So a 'suprapubic' catheter is recommended. which would mean an end to the soreness, discomfort, restricted mobility and recurrent infections with the more conventional kind. Staring a lifetime of catheter bags in the face. And lonely. And frankly, sick to death of discussing leg straps and catheter bags and soreness and the total, total lack of life we have at the mo. He had been going to the gym regularly, doing the shopping, gardening, occasional (albeit short) walks, just enjoying life. Now he's not enjoying anything because he's constantly uncomfortable and frequently sore. It's his birthday next week and I don't think he even wants to celebrate it.
Rant nearly done; just feeling rather rubbish and because of PD he forgets about how I feel. I don't blame him, it must be awful.
End of rant.
