    Everything has settled and cathing isn't such a scary thing any more.

    The Hollister VaPro Plus Pockets came, but didn't work for me. The tube is too flaccid and in the very slippery sleeve is hard to control inserting. The collar of the point is narrow and pressed into penis. Ouch. Managed...

    cathing - lost urge to pee

    I've many years had urgency and frequent urge to pee. Day and waking at night. L2 incomplete. No after only a few days as a self cather I no longer get a signal. Also as I've aged and retention was high I've had a firm bladder. Now my abdomen is quite soft even when I then cath over 800ml.

    #2 procedure is bisalax suppository on waking, breakfast check email etc then on the commode. It takes some straining to make product. As I hadn’t peed and none was coming, I cathed with no issues. After that the next time I strained there was a drop of blood - just a litte ooze - sitting on my...

    Sine the morning cath and no normal peeing and realised it was nearly 2pm at work. So, still with no caths with a bag transferred to toilet to cath. NOT EASY!!! Lucky I took two to work as one slipped and was unusable.

    I'm having no problem inserting the cooloplast flex.

    Latest installment: after getting almost no urge to pee after the midday cathing, apart from producing about 250ml in the evening, I cathed at midnight. This time managed to aim into the bottle; 1 litre! This morning after no overnight...

    I am on Flomax ... also blood pressure meds but doc didn't mention that as an issue when prescribing. BP isn't "super low"

    I don't think the problem is lube. Lube has been what's inside the sleeve of the flex or in the tube of the compact. That didn't seem to be the issue. Maybe my stress level was tightening the tubes.

    I had another go with the flex before bed last night midnight, sitting on commode. All went...

    Urine was a little cloudier this morning, started antibiotic (1 so far). During the day I noticed some white streak floating in the bottle. I think I'll hold off trying to cath again until this clears up. That should allow any trauma to heal in the meantime. Spoke to Hollister about their product and...

    If enlarged prostate? It will squeeze off urethra unless you are on meds such as Tamsulosin (Flomax). Blood pressure must not be super low to take it or others ending in osin. CWO

    Used the speedicath compact just now. Insertion is easier holding the casing and guiding the tip in. I definitely felt the resistance and cough/push it went in. I don't think I forced it but it did require more pressure than I liked using. Withdrawing was some resistance but cough/pull it released....

    new self-cather - bladder spasm

    I have only one hand. L2 incomplete. I have areas of full feeling, dull feeling and no feeling in my groin. Enlarged prostate. Many years tap to release but increased retention was found and self-cath recommended.

    I had my second try cathing last night.

    First attempt was with...

    Skin tag

    I've had a skin tag on my bum for a long time. Not an area of full pressure but on the top right of the leg in an area that has feeling. It's an area that annoys me from time to time but I look and there's generally no change.

    A couple of days ago I was uncomfortable, looked to see it extended...
