✉ Dear Owner//Driver
HOLD ON AT YOUR PERIL
To all you macho truckies out there. I used to be a macho truckie and not stop for a pee when I felt the urge. I used to hang on to the detriment of my bladder.
The surgeon that operated on me said the bladder had swollen up like a balloon. The trouble is it wouldn’t deflate like a normal balloon.
She said that it would never return to a normal size. I am one of the lucky ones. I only have to insert a catheter (a long length of plastic tubing that is hollow inside) once a day. The unlucky people have to insert it three times a day.
I urge all your macho truckies out there to listen to your bladder and stop when you feel the need to have a pee. Lyall Pritchard, Bracken Ridge, Qld
