  • another one of my stupid questions

    I was wondering if any of you who do the cath at home ever have a problem with having the "Big O" while putting it in and taking it out and for a while afterwards? I have no clue as to what I am doing wrong but never had this happen when Uro did is. It is very annoying too because it will keep happening on and off for about 1 hour after taking the cath out. I'm not touching anything down there to put the cath in. I can hold onto the cath and slide it in by itself. Are the "Big O" nerves located near the erurethra?

    What size catheter are you using?

      Not sure what size but it is the same kind of cath my uro uses. That's why I think this is so strange.

        Does your MD know the problem you are having?
        I know that most of the time they use a larger catheter. They also might use a numbing gel.
