Please follow this link to organizations that can help with advice and devices to make our life more livable. I have learned the very most about coping strategies from other people with neurogenic bladder and bowel. It takes one to know one is so true. I have both neurogenic bladder and bowel so I am always on the look out for helpful tips. While on my computer this morning I found this web site. It had so many tips I just had to share it with you!
I found these links by searching the words, neurogenic bladder and bowel, help me. I know we cannot trust everything we find on the internet but going a step further and searching for organizations can put us a step further to answering our unanswered questions. I know our doctors are busy. At times, our family and friends don't care to be bothered by our urgent business we need to take care of. Besides, I get it, it is private. There are people that care and are often sufferers themselves that are willing to offer help, support, and suggestions.
I hope this helps you,
