  • Thanks, the generic Levaquin didn't work the first time, Cipro worked the second time.

    One thing I like about the latex catheter is I can lay it flat against my stomach and tape it down so that it doesn't protrude out at all where it comes out of my stomach. This helps my pants/belt from hitting it. Are silicone catheters just as flexible?...

    Which foley catheter to buy (SP tube)?

    Can't find any recent threads about this. I'm a few months in to using an SP tube, and am trying to decide which catheter to buy. The current one my urologist put in is a Bardex Infection Control 2 way foley. Because of my high deductible (private insurance) I will be paying out of pocket. These catheters...

  • Thanks for the replies but I answered both of your questions in my original post. I had the test done a week after getting off antibiotics and I didn't have any symptoms. I guess pbr answered my question though as in my case they didn't think the C&S was worth being completed based on the UA. I...

    Is urine culture required if urinalysis is clean?

    I had a UTI recently that didn't go away after taking oral antibiotics. So the urologist started me on a second round using a different antibiotic.

  • I got off all my pain meds about 4 years ago (percocet, tramadol, gabapentin). I gave myself about 6 months to ween off of everything. Don't get me wrong, the process was not fun and the increase in pain with every step down was pretty rough. But after a while it would level out and I would step down...

    Thanks, I keep my keys, money clip, and pocket knife in that small bag. And there is a zipper on the outside that I leave open and slide my phone into it. The bottom half of my phone fits in that spot buts it's enough to keep it from falling out. I don't think I've ever seen anyone else with a bag on...

  • I used a Roho Hybrid Elite before. One time I let the air get too low in the cushion (my fault) and got a 2nd degree pressure sore on my left ischium. Had to lay on my side for 8 weeks and have been in a Ride cushion ever since. One thing to be aware of with Ride cushions is your weight is offset from...
