Common Challenges for patients

Bladder and bowel dysfunction is a common issue, which may manifest as urinary and fecal incontinence or the inability to empty the bladder fully. Cognitive impairments may include memory lapses, attention deficits, and struggles with multitasking. On the emotional front, depression, mood swings, and irritability are frequently reported. Finally, sensory issues such as numbness, tingling, and pain can greatly affect quality of life.

When it comes to catheterization, there are several options suitable for those living with MS.

Hydrophilic catheters are pre-lubricated to provide a smoother, more comfortable experience.
