        This practice could put you at significant risk for getting a UTI. It is not safe to keep urine in your bladder for 12 hours or more, no matter what medications you take or how little you drink. Dehydrating yourself significantly increases your risk for developing a DVT while flying too.

        Easy to say for a MAN. This post is in Mobile WOMAN for a reason. The issues are much more complex and difficult to arrange for a woman when flying. One time that the male anatomy is easier to deal with.

          I have only flown once and I dont know if the foley wasnt inserted correctly or what but it leaked on me and I had a huge embarrasing moment. BUT I had only been paralyzed nine months at the time too so I was still getting used to everything. I had severe UTIs too. I now have a Mitrofanoff through my belly button and can use an empty water bottle and a straight catheter. My question now it this: I haven't flown since then and at the time, my mother handled the "storing" of my chair. How do you guys go about arranging your wheelchair for the flight? I mean like, does an attendant or anyone help you get it ready to be loaded with the luggage and push you onto the plane or what? It has been so long I am not sure what to do. (I flew to South America so it was a bit different)
          One more thing: Do they give people in wheelchairs time to transfer flights if there is a short layover, or do you just have to plan for your plane to be the connecting flight for wherever? Just wondering because the flying hassle intimidates me a little.
