Hedelund Healthcare Centre, Denmark

At Denmark’s Hedelund Healthcare Centre for elderly and disabled people, one 37-year-old patient has been suffering from the effects of a spinal tumour for some 20 years. One consequence of the tumour was faecal incontinence.

The patient had tried a number of medical treatment options, but none had any significant effect. This resulted in the patient becoming depressed and increasingly isolated socially. After consulting with a doctor and a nurse, the centre staff decided to try irrigation using the Qufora® IrriSedo Mini System.

The centre staff taught the patient’s home carers how to use the system, and after finding the right daily routine, the patient found she no longer required medical treatment for her incontinence.

As a result, she is no longer afraid of embarrassing accidents, she is going out and socialising more, and she has recovered much of her old spirit. It doesn’t hurt, the patient says, that there’s a lot less laundry to do as well.

From a patient in London, UK

“Continence had crept up on me over a number of years, until it was really affecting my life, my dignity and my bank balance. My GP referred me to the local hospital, who in return referred me to a rectal unit at a London hospital.

They treated me for my condition on a regular basis and changed my life considerably. After a couple of years, I went for my regular visit and they sent me home with a sample box of Qufora. This little device has completed the chance I needed to return to the human race.

My ‘irrigation system’ as it is known in our house, allows me to be clean whenever and wherever I am. No where is out of bounds. As long as you have some warm water and a loo you can find yourself back to normal in minutes.

The member of staff at Qufora are very friendly and any problems you have are quickly dealt with. Nothing is too much trouble. Any changes you need to make to your regular prescription are dealt with efficiently.

They do say the little things in life matter and this definitely applies to my Qufora. Long may supply continue”.
