Doctor Or Not?
My Doctor put a name on my symtoms a couple of years ago informing me that I had "urge incontinence". He sugguested Flomax , which I resisted taking, and he understood. Since then I have been using the external catheter to manage my incontinence. I have been planning to talk to him during my up coming phyical and inform him about using the external cath., which I am sure will be no big deal for him. But at the same time I want to bring up the subject of also using a Foley at times as an alternative to the external cath. My thoughts is if he is aware of it, then if I end up getting a UTI in the future he would be on board and know what is going on. What do you guy think or suggest? Ask him about using a Foley or Not?
