spinal-cord injury

another week in Paradise: context

pt.1: last week was spent swimming in wee. after five months of a urethral catheter, I had an operation to insert a suprapubic catheter (i.e. directly into the bladder from just below the bellybutton). the operation seemed to go well but has had unfortunate consequences. In addition to urine going into the catheter I have been leaking through the penis – waking up often in a wet bed. Yes, I am now of bed wetter!
