Thread: My Urologist Visit

  1. #1

    Default My Urologist Visit

    Went to my urologist for a four month checkup. Nothing happened during that visit other than he was going to have his nurse setup an appointment for me with another specialist out of town. I told the doctor that my bladder is getting worse. I have to use 3 to 4 Dry 24/7 diapers a day to keep dry. He didnít say anything about it.

    So Friday, his nurse called me with appointment information. While talking with her, I asked her if she would ask the doctor if I could use a Foley catheter for a while to give me a break for a little bit. The Dr. agreed and the nurse said if you can come into the office before they closed that she would put one in me and hook me to a leg bag. I told her I would be there as quickly as possible. :truck:

    When I got there, she took me back to an exam room that she had all ready for me. While she was getting her gloves on and starting to open packages, I just dropped my pants, took off my soaked diaper, got a wipe out of my bag and started wiping my diaper area. Doing this while the nurse and I was just chatting. This nurse is a young nurse and very cute too. She joked about me wiping myself, she said, you donít have to worry too much about that cause I am going to use what I have to wipe you again. So I lay down on the exam table with my pants down. :tucked: She spread my legs some and put a glass measuring cup between my legs. They use them to drain the bladder into. She put the catheter in me and let it drain. Neither of us could believe how much I had in me. I told her I no longer can tell when my bladder is full; it just goes when it wants to. Once I was all drained she started to hookup the leg bag but dropped a strap in the urine. Once she got out another strap and finished, I got up and pulled up my pants. She left the room to go get me a night bag so I donít have to wear the leg bag while sleeping. While she was out, she found me an extension tube so that I could wear the leg bag down at my calf. So I dropped my pants again and she knelt down and moved the bag down my leg. She told me if I have any problems to call her and that in about 6 weeks she would take the catheter out and I would go back to my diapers.

    What was so interesting to me was I didnít have a care in the world when I dropped my pants and started removing my soaked diaper. I didnít give it a second thought and she didnít have to tell me to get undressed either. When I lay down on the table she pulled the curtain so if someone walked in the room they couldnít see what was going on. I didnít even think about that when I was standing there wiping myself. Someone could have walked right in while my pants down, soaked diaper in hand, but I am now starting to get to the point that I donít care.

    I'm glad things went well for you... but I'm just not a fan of caths. Too many possible complications.

    Since I cath every day as well as having to wear diapers, having a Foley in for me at least is less complications. It is also helping another medical problem I have.

    Catheters are not for everyone. Everyone has a different reaction to them sorta like everyone has their own type of diaper the wear and how often they change.

    I'd expect there to be a bit more, perhaps remarks on how to deal with it, how it feels, what I could expect getting a cath... etc. :P

    and once again... good on ya dood.

    Also... if you are using 4 Dry 24/7s a day you should get your doctor to check your urine output. You are either drinking a heck of a lot (which is fine) or there is something wrong that is making your kidneys put out way too much urine. Typically with Abena X-plus I can go all day with just two diapers.

    How much water do you drink though?

    I haven't really measured... but let's say I drink enough to stay well hydrated. My urine is typically very light colored or clear and doesn't smell much at all. I am a firm believer that proper hydration helps your body stay healthy.

    Carri ada Drew,
    My post was put in the incontinence section for a reason. Reason being I am incontinent and wanting to share a little bit about how I am dealing with it. I am glad Chillhouse confirmed that this is also a support community because with comments like yours it sure doesnít feel like one. I posted the first part of what has happened and what I am starting to accept.

    Chillhouse
    Thanks for the support.

    Darkfinn,
    My fluid intake is anywhere between 100oz to around 150oz a day. Normally I only use two Dry 24/7 a day, one at night and one during the day. I donít know why I am going so much and that is why I explained to my doctor that things were getting worse but he didnít really care. He was only interested in getting me to see another Urologist at Vanderbuilt.


    Thanks everyone that read my post. Sorry but I no longer feel good about sharing anything about my experiences on this board. I will from now on think 4 times before I even reply to someoneís question.
    I will be around but will be quite.

    Thank you for allowing me to share and participate what little I have.
