BHP has become a big issue in my life. I'm taking .8 mg of Tamsolosin a day plus an anti-inflammatory. As I've read in other threads, there are good days and bad days. On the bad days I fear that I may have to go to the ER to be catheterized but so far, I've gotten by. There's usually 1-2 bad days a week. The other days are fine. I have a long planned 10-day trip coming up in about 10 days and thinking it would be a good idea to have some catheters on hand. I tried to call my Doc but he's out for 2 weeks and they said to go to the ER if it's an emergency.
I'm looking on some of the med-supply sites and instruction videos. I would have no problem with self-catheterization. My daughter is an RN and she just talked to me about hygiene and I'll be fine with the htdrated, no-touch caths.
I'm going to place an order for the trip. I don't know anything about size and tip except that 14F, straight tip is the most common. I'm average size, in every way.
Will I be OK with the Coloplast SpeediCath Male Hydrophilic Catheter 14 F, straight tip, for an back-up on the trip? Or, is there something else for a first-timer?
