I have stumbled on a great idea that will help your bladder get back to functionning normally.
If some of you guys are like me, wearing a catheter full time for 30 days or more and aren't quite ready to do CIC (self-cath) and also waiting to get a prostate operation, you can use this method to get the bladder used to holding a volume of urine again and improve the bladder capacity to get the bladder to hold between 300-500ml of urine before you empty it with that valve. With the catheter valve, you just need to remove the bag attached to your leg and have the valve attached to the y edge of the catheter near your penis. At least this way it's like not wearing a catheter to train your bladder to function normally again.
Here's the link to the article page: http://www.healthtalk.org/peoples-experiences/long-term-conditions/living-urinary-catheter/catheter-valves
Hope you enjoy it, it's a real stress relief for me
