Next week I am going into hospital for major orthopaedic surgery. I am IC and wear 24/7 at the moment. I am also under investigation for IC at the same hospital. I had my pre-op assessment yesterday and told the nurse about my IC and need for pads / diapers.
The nurse was really nice and said....
I will need to bring my own supplies in
Unless I can definitely not change myself the nursing staff will only do it as part of wash and cleanness routines
I must not be embarrassed about the situation when I come in for the operation.
Have anyone else had a hospital stay while diapered? How did you get on?
What was your experience?
