Hi, I recently discovered a brilliant little gadget. I have a supra pubic catheter. I hate leg bags, so have the tubing coming up via my trousers waistband and the collection bag hangs on my wheelchair, in a small cloth bag. It is ok, but I was always checking that the tubing wasn`t caught up anywhere.

Last week, when my district nurse came to change my catheter, she asked me if I had tried a fixator. I didnt know what she meant, so she gave me one to try.

It sticks to your tum and has a clip which holds the tubing securely and works brilliantly! It`s very comfortable!

If it might help anyone else, ask your district nurse.
