I use the stoma prescription service which is very good. The people are very helpful and kind – the prescriptions are delivered within 2 days of me calling them.
I’m getting on OK with the catheter bags but I do feel the hospital could have talked to me about things that could go wrong so that I would be better prepared. I was in hospital for an appointment when the bag leaked – I ended up going home in my coat over a hospital gown. I’ve also had a few problems at home – If I’d known that things like this could happen I would not have been so upset when they did happen, I could have coped better.
