    My Catheter Is Finally Out!

    This morning, a home nurse came round and she finally took my catheter out. I feel so much better now I can walk properly and bend over to pick things up without being in a lot of pain. I feel so free now, I have no idea why some people love them so much. Luckily, I can now...

    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.
