Valued Cure Medical Advocate logoCure Catheters Help Jean Mooney Find Relief After Decades of Struggling with Bladder Issues

Jean Mooney resides with her husband, Jewell, in southeast Missouri. After decades of dealing with a number of bladder-related issues, Jean finally decided to try catheters – and her doctor recommended a Cure. Jean shares her experience below.

A Simple Procedure Results in Decades of bladder Issues for Jean

Now in her mid-80’s, Jean Mooney had been living with bladder issues and conditions for more than 25 years. When she was nearly 60, Jean scheduled an appointment to have a hernia fixed in her right groin. About five days after the surgery, the hernia came back and she ended up having to have two more surgeries in an attempt to resolve the condition.

Little did Jean know, the hernia surgeries would result in other lasting health problems, completely unrelated to the hernia.

The surgeon informed her that he had cut into her bladder while trying to repair the hernia. Later, Jean found out that her surgeon was rumored to have been using drugs while operating.

Hernias can cause tremendous pain as well as other medical issues for people, like Jean, who have them.

The damage to the bladder caused by Jean’s surgeon would lead to all sorts of related issues, including inability to empty her bladder, frequent UTI’s and pain. She has had to endure eight cystoscopes to try and remedy the frequent bladder infections and suffered from a marble-sized bladder stone. Her doctors also suspect that she has interstitial cystitis, but it’s not something that they can diagnosis for certain.

Treating bladder infections and UTI’s became more and more difficult for Jean and her doctors as the years passed. She became immune and allergic to many antibiotics – and during one of her more severe infections, she had to have a PICC line for eight days to deliver antibiotics to directly to her heart.Coffee Pot and CupJean has also had to live without some of her favorite refreshments. By the advice of her physicians and simple trial and error over the years, she’s learned that caffeine, sodas and high-acid foods, like citrus and grapes, are out of the question. If she indulges, she says she pays with a lot of pain.

“I love real coffee, but I can’t drink it! My husband often wants me to share a cup, but I’ve learned to avoid it. It’s not worth the pain that follows,” Jean says.

Jean enjoys a pleasant surprise in using Cure Catheters

When Jean got a new urologist a few years back, they recommended that she try using catheters to help remedy some of the bladder-related issues she had been suffering from for so long.

“I was reluctant for a long time,” Jean explains. “I thought catheters would be messy and I was scared. I didn’t want to use them. I had already tried these long, red, rubber tubes to empty my bladder, but they didn’t work too well for me.”Jean Mooney

Finally, Jean’s doctor was able to convince her that catheters could really help her and he recommended the Cure Twist.

She says it didn’t take her any time to get used to using them, and that was more than three years ago.
