    roughly 6084 catheters

    Still no fun.

    Nitpick - if you are going to say roughly, it should be 6080 or 6100. If you use 6084, it should be estimated; and it still is not fun - sure wish I could pee in 30 seconds again!

        That was suppose to be funny, i laugh alot at my own jokes, nobody gets them but me, but thanks for the correction. And to make it worse, i did the math wrong, roughly 1032. And i understand i'm just getting started, that alot of people would love to cath. i was counting the empty boxes. my daughter makes a huge fort out of them. Thats about 8 months
        worth, had a foley cath for first two months. My wifes into recyclling. Maybe i'll build the first Bard house.

          I've cathed ~54,750 times since being injured. That's at 6 times every 24 hours. Crazy.

            That's something like 12 miles of catheter if I'm doing the math right.

                I use between 2 and 4 catheters per month......those 6,084 catheters would last me until the year 2,137. But I'm hoping they will have cured SCI in the next 126 years.....

                      Give serious thought to braiding used cath tubes into bracelets and necklaces--be all the rage at craft shows.

                            i am always finding uses for the ones that i would have thrown away. Sometimes there is a malfunction.
                            yesterday i had a big malfunction, but it was cockpit error.
                            i asked lo fric to send me some of those pocket caths with water satchel. i use the ones with the bag., not the whole kit type, just a sterile setup.i saw the lo fric primo is a lot smaller,less bulk. figured i could try those when i am out or do half half, i like to measure, obsecced i know!.
                            i had never used one, but seemed simple , inserted it in bathroom in restaurant , but i am used ti having the green funnel in the bag. In this case that is not good. i tried to tear off the plastic on the funnel ,only got a piece off and the pressure now was shooting pee across the room, since it was like a i/8 inch hole/tear. oh wells, better next time, glad i washed my hands good pre cath, since i had to handler the cath. Best to read the directions first i guess.
