I am beginning to think my bedridden husband needs a permanent catheter. He is on diuretics and is constantly wet. Our incontinence supplies are not covered by insurance and are expensive since he needs extended sizes. He has absolutely ruined the flooring under his bed (twice) It is buckled and I have worries about the floor rotting through. His skin is in awful shape with something like blisters (not Shingles) from exposure to urine all over his lower back and crotch area. I hate to see him catheterized because any hope of going out and about would be dashed forever. It’s hard enough to maneuver him now much less with a catheter attached. I also worry about infection. He may need an external catheter, and I have the feeling those leak. Any advice, suggestions and shared experiences appreciated.
