    I don't have any advice, but I feel you. I have been dealing with increased plugging for 2.5 years after 15 years of mainly smooth sailing. I have tried everything under the sun, and nothing seems to consistently help. I thought that switching to a low friction catheter helped, but the sediment and plugging returned after a few months. Good luck buddy.

      plugged again question though we took the 6cc out of balloon and the gunk popped out of stoma 8rine flowed frelely rather than changing cathe could I have just put 6 cc back in balloon and not pulled it out as it flowed freely?

        You certainly could do that and it might work, at least until it plugged up again, but how about running it with the balloon half full and see how you do?
        What's to loose? Worst case is it pulls out and you might get wet again......which has been ongoing
        Makes me wonder.......is the balloon half full or half empty!

            Hi vjls
            Have you been recommended to try the use of diluted acetic acid to flush your catheter? For people who run the risk of catheter obstruction, this solution breaks up the deposits a little better than saline or water. Some people have to use it on a regular basis to break up an obstruction and alternate with use of saline or water.

                        diluted acetic acid
                        What do you mean diluted? how much do you dilute it by like by what %? And also where do you keep this from?
