Can you give us more detail please because it's quite vague? Seeing a specialist about what?

Threr is another thread on this subject, it might be the master class in comparison to this one. You should read it.

If as I suspect, you intend to use a foley open-ended in a diaper, you will most certainly be getting specialist advice after the fact, this along with treatment for your UTI.

Without exception ALL the information you need is FREELY available on the web from reputable sites, you have only to look. Do two searches back to back, 1/ How a foley is correctly inserted, 2/ Complications and dangers of foley use.

I strongly suggest you should research your subject, directly from the horses mouth -so to speak, least you fall a victim to Sod's Law which dictates, What can go wrong will go wrong.

Not much else to say, have fun.

No i dont think so. They would only advise you not to do it and start asking you questions. If you don't get a super cool doc Ofc :p

I'm here to help you if you need it. I've played with catheters. Just give me all your questions! :)

Everywhere I've looked require prescriptions to buy catheters. Maybe the reason for going to the doctor is that?

There are some online sources that will sell to you without a prescription as long as you're paying up front.

I have 5 cases of self lube caths in my basement. I quit using them, but they sent a box every month there for a while. Please talk to a Doctor or a Nurse before using them. Yes they are simple to use. But can also do damage at the same time.

You can really hurt yourself with a catheter if you don't know what you're doing. It's not pleasant. My best friend's fiance is a nurse in the ER in one of the top hospitals in the northeast region, I've heard horror stories.

Don't be stupid, don't do it.

I've never had any trouble buying catheters from reputable sources.

Just google how to videos before hand. It's not rocket science just sticking a tube in a hole, but you need to know about sterile technique before going forward.

Doctors will absolutely say no to a free drain foley into a diaper, you will be just wasting your money to go to the doctor about it, foley are to be connected to a drain bag for health reasons the main one is a sterile path with anti reflux valves ( before these valves were put in line lifting a bag to the same level or higher than the abdomen resulted in backfilling the bladder with urine. If you are going to play with foley in diaper pay cash for supplies , watch for complications like UTIS, do not ever use rash cream well the foley is in, never ever mess your diaper well foley is in ( the foley becomes a bacterial super highway into your body) the most common cause of infections when cultured is fecal bacteria.

I will add that you should not wear the same diaper for an extended amount of time. Diapers can keep the bacteria that forms from urine at bay for a little while. While many here probably look at catheters as dangerous, they can be if you don't take the extra precautions recommended when using catheters. Don't take short cuts and don't go number two. I've used catheters in the past and I haven't encountered any problems. This doesn't mean that something bad can't happen but, play carefully, and don't stretch limits.

I've done it, once. I had written a couple of catheter scenes into stories I had written and I kind of got curious. You bet there are all kinds of things that can go wrong. Reading the warnings and such are enough to scare most people off. You have to be prepared to head off to the doctor or ER and fess up what you've done if you try and something does happen.

Anyhow, there are tons of instructional videos on how to cath people on youtube. I got not only the foley catheter but an insertion tray and leg bag when I ordered. I did this with the best sterile technique I could. Frankly I almost chickened out before and during the process but it turned out OK. Anyhow, the idea of it was better than the reality so after about four hours or so I removed it.
I don't think I'll ever do it again.

Strawberry they do make very inexpensjve catheter securement devices
Laying in bed with a catheter is completely different than living a "normal" life with one, every time you move or turn or any kind of action causes "pulling" or traction on the catheter which without a catheter locking device you feel the movement of the balloon in your bladder and against your urethra, not alot of fun , I have had to have foley several times well not in the hospital and just transferring to my wheelchair or into bed became a "sport" , even with a locking device in place ( and trust me the soft leg band version is a lot nicer than the adhesive kind because once the catheter comes out removing the adhesive locking device means wherever it was placed you get a wax like removal of the body hair).

My wife works in a nusing hoe and they no longer use catheters now. The residents who are incontinent all wear pads or slips (nappies) It is less risky where infections are concerned. When I became incontinent I was offered a conveen and night stand but declined and was given nappies instead.

They passed laws in the US and probably on your side of the pond aswell that indwelling catheters are only to be used when exact input and output must be measured,and must be removed as soon as possible , because like 98% of all Hospital acquired infections were obtained through indwelling catheters, we have not found a new antibiotic since the 1970's ( they are studying one compound currently that shows promise in the lab, but is along way from human efficacy trials) and there are so many antibiotic resistant things in hospitals they want to decrease the overall risk , by decreasing the risky interventions unless absolutely vital to patients, also in the US they passed laws that say if something happens to you well in hospital ( infection, fall etc) the patient and/or insurance company can not be billed for all care related to that incident meaning whatever it takes to make you healthy and whole again comes directly out of the hospitals pocket and can not be written off as charity care ( because that would mean the tax payers would be on the hook for the hospital's mistake) since most hospitals are for profit corporation's they hate when they lose money because that means lower profits and smaller salaries for CEOS .
