Thanks for the replies. The nippiness is always there when the catheter is in place, it draws the tip inward which gives me some pain when I walk.
Think it is because of the movement when I walk etc. I wear tight underpants to try and hold things in place but it still doesn't help much in improving things.
Getting it removed on Friday so at least that will be over but the self cathertisation should be an experience.
Just couldn't understand how it came to a weak flow when I had regained dryness almost straight away and had a good flow after surgery last December, and why it has taken so long to find the root cause. Had been given tablets for an overactive bladder a couple of months ago instead trying to determine where the problem lay.
Ah well enough of my moaning at least I am still here.
