i have recently been diagnosed with some bowel problem which became acute and was getting bad bowel overflow.

i contacted my local continence clinic who told me that first they would send out a long winded survey but hold why a survey when i haven't received any treatment or pads.

next even though my problem is with bowel overflow, the nurse is only wanting me to measure my urine output which would be a nightmare as i have a constantly flowing catheter and why my urine output when the problem is nothing to do with it.

i just don't get this and in the mean time no pads or nothing else.

the nurse told me that everyone has to do this for a first assessment, just seems very long winded to me.

finally this does defeat the whole object, for the time been i have been told to buy my own pads
