It's not difficult or painful, the only trick is to be super clean so that you don't pick up a UTI. I just had my fourth or fifth BOTOX bladder injection today, this entirely puts my bladder to sleep for about 6 months, no leaking, no accidents, I entirely sleep through the night, but I need to self-cath about every 4 hours during the day to empty my bladder. Highly recommend this approach.
If I ever lose the ability to self-cath (because of tremors, etc) I'll investigate the supra-pubic catheter. I hope this never happens.
