Big John Toilet Seats

If you are reading this post chances are that you have a neurogenic bladder and bowel or both.  I'd like to give you a heads up about a convenience that is beyond measure, a toilet seat that is raised high and wide for easy acess….

Big John toilet seats are made to accommodate people at up to 1000 pounds.  I am tall but I weigh no where near that.  That said I must confess,  I would never be without my Big John.  I use the type that has the opening in front.  Not only does it have an opening in front, but  it is raised quite a bit. 

Because I use a catheter every time I pee having this toilet seat gives me easy access.  Any woman that needs to use a tampon once a month would find this toilet seat worth the change over as well.

I do have bladder problems and am prone to bladder infection  so using this toilet seat helps me keep things cleaner and gives me a straight shot.  It did take be a while to get used to it.  I felt like a bird perched up on a branch at first.  Now however,  I am truly grateful for the convenience it offers me.  

I found out about it on a face book page with other people with neurogenic bladder and bowel problems.  With their encouragement I sought one out and I am so glad I did.
