After a devastating jump into a swimming pool on his vacation trip in Greece, Michael Kerr injured his spine and came to understand that his paralysis came with consequences other than he could have imagined.
Michael’s spinal cord injury affected his bladder and bowel, requiring alternative methods for going to the bathroom.
He was introduced to urinary catheters to empty his bladder, but he was also able to pass urine on his own. Over the years his bladder started to slow down and he was unable to pass as well as he could in the beginning. He started using Intermittent Catheterization (IC) more regularly which actually became a positive experience.
