New to this board, but unfortunately, long time "lurker" and occassional contributor to the breast cancer board, starting 6 years ago.
Being treated for BC mets to the adrenal since last April. Last scan showed hydronephrosis in kidney on other side. Ended up this week getting a nephrostomy tube. Not that hard to handle , but I was hoping to get some tips on the everyday stuff. I don't wear dresses or skirts unless I'm pushed to the wall, and since I'm now retired---no walls!
So how do you all handle the yucky plastic sticking to your leg and bobbing around in your pants leg thing? Yes, I have it pinned to my blouse/shirt, but that means I have to tuck in the top which I usually don't do. I'm not much on sewing, but could make a pouch, but how do you hold the pouch in place? Leg bands?? And will I always have to wear stretch waist pants?
I would love to hear from anyone whose dealt with all the daily "froo-froo" (always like to use the technical terms, when possible)
