"catheter fitted"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital / Urology

(as the patient),

beginning of july 2010.I had to go to q.e.hospital,in an ambulance,I couldnt urinate.I was eventually seen by a doctor(i think he was a doctor)

A catheter was fitted.waited 4 hours told to go home,a district nurse will see me after afew days.Absolutly no information given,nothing.the inconvienience and discomfort was awful.

a week later I saw a district nurse,I was told how to turn the catheter on,no help at all.I waited a couple of weeks,got a letter from the hospital appointment for september,i eventually saw a man who stuck a finger up my bottom,and told me to make another appointment later,2 months later,due to go again at end of november.when I had finger up my bottom,I was also prescribed tamsulosin.I looked up on the internet and found finasteride,shrinks prostate,I went to my doctors and had them prescribed to me.

Every time i have phoned queen elizabeth hosp,the phone just rings and rings,Ive had no help whatsoever .WILL IT EVER GET ANY BETTER?
