so this is a bit of a weird one I guess, I am a 26 year old female and last week I went in to retention this had happened twice and apparently it's a pretty uncommon thing in a female and a female of my age. Anyway they decided to catheteris me for two weeks using a leg bag so I could go home. The A&E department discharged me with the hopes that the district nurses in my area would follow up. However Because I'm not house bound they wouldn't take me as a patient and now I'm stuck.... for the first few days everything was as alright as I could expect however it's getting a lot more sensitive. I'm getting a burning sensation similar to trying to pee with a UTI, and if I try and void my bowls it feels like the catheter is ripping it's self out its soooooo uncomfortable and painful. And I don't know if this is normal... and with noone ask other than short of going back to A&E I'm struggling. Any help or advice would be a amazing.
