I have been doing my own instils at home for about 6 months. Did one today but found it was leaking out so most went down the toilet. Has anyone any experience of this. It felt like it was running out of my bladder but not through the catheter. Is this possible. I checked the connection after and it was tightly attached to the adaptor. I also tried using some water through the syringe and everything was ok.
Feel so annoyed but also worried that it leaked out because my urethra can allow it out as well as through the catheter. Which means it might be difficult holding it in while I'm doing the instil.
Any comments greatly appreciated. I don't get any support from the hospital now.
