I had perineal surgery on Feb 20 and here are a few items that I found useful:
For the catheter mounting, I used the 3" wide bandage wrap that sticks to itself. I could easily wrap this around my leg and it secured the hose very well. It gave enough to allow for easy movement, and I only had to replace once a day. Just be sure to get a name brand or it may not stick well enough.
You may not have the issues I did, but a trip to your local medical supply store should get you the following goodies - mainly used for ostomy patients, and works good for babies as well. Aloe Vesta cleansing foam by ConvaTec, and zinc oxide based Calmoseptine Ointment (www.calmoseptineointment.com).
This is about all I can add. Good luck with your recovery.
