    The only times I've had foley catheters was following surgical procedures. They didn't do me any damage. I do think it's important to work with your doctor on this.

    Home Foley catheters

    Does anyone use these? I just purchased some that are designed for home use, since I figure it might provide some relief on the nights where I just can't sleep from needing to get up to pee every 3 minutes. Strange as it may seem, a cath/leg bag sounds really appealing during those situations.

    Are there long-term detrimental effects on the bladder/urethra (such as retention) from using these on a semi-weekly basis? What are your experiences with using home Foley catheters?
