I can tell you, other then the pain of it going in and coming out, and the pain that you have after it comes out and you go normally (and mind you this is with the medication to lubricate your tube, and turns your pee all orange). You don't feel your bladder full as it just flows out as it comes out, I was kind of shocked how fast the bag filled up. But still I would not want to repeat it. I would have to have a real major medical issue to accept it again. I am sorry it just not worth it unless not having it has a chance of really doing major damage to my body, as it itself can damage my body, and it is very unpleasant, plus I am very shy about that part of my body, and it was unpleasant to have a nurse put it in. The only good thing I can say about it, was when it was put in, was that it was medically needed and that I could have damaged my kidneys if I did not take it (as I said I had a blockage) that the only good thing I can say about it, every thing else I can say is negative. I really hated it and don't want to go though it ever again. Just unpleasant in all aspects.I wonder whether catheters are worse for guys? But I doubt they are anywhere near pleasant for anyone. I have wondered though, if you have a catheter for whatever reason, do you just never feel a need to pee the whole time it's in because it just drains out constantly? Is it actually like induced incontinence?
