I'm on my 3rd day of self cathing. If I use a hydrophilic catheter, is it ok to also add some lubricant to the first inch or so? I know it defeats the purpose of a hydrophilic type...but is there any harm in adding lubricant?
The reason I ask is I started with the Speedicath coude tip catheter and had to switch to a hydrophilic type (at least temporarily because of what was available locally) and the first time I used it, it didn't seem to go in as smoothly.
Also, any opinions on the brand: Gentlecath Glide coude tip hydrophilic catheter size 14.
Thanks for any advice, this forum has helped me a lot this week!
