I belong to an on line forum of people with spinal cord injuries.

This was posted by a young lady recently injured.

This injury leads to a lot of sadness.


Does anyone have their bowel care done on a normal bed by district nurses? I’ve ordered a split mattress adjustable divan double bed for my partner and I. I talked to the DN about it and they said it was fine but now, 3 days before its due to arrive, they’ve decided its too low and they can’t do my bowel care on it. I can’t afford the vertical lift mechanism, its another £700, and the alternative is that My husband  and I carry on having to sleep in single beds in seperate rooms for ever more. Its just seems so unfair, will we never get to be a normal couple again what do other people do?
