    I Am Currently Catheterised..

    Last night I got rushed into hospital because I had urinary retention which caused immense pain in my bladder. They've put a catheter in which I have to keep in for two weeks. Luckily, instead of having a urine bag, they have just fitted a valve so it is like having an artificial...

    I Was Cathetered Once In The Er.

    I was out of it when they put it in. It hurt a little removing it. It burned to pee a few times after that. Not a bad experience. I want to try it again, just away from the hospital.
