about halfway through my catheter days, and really really really looking forward to its removal, really.  However, I have been surprised to learn that a catheter has so many other uses. Here’s my top ten list:

 

10. Educational device – after several mornings of getting up, I now realize that I was entirely wrong about what the phrase ‘kick the bucket’ really means.

9.  GPS (Grab Penis Swiftly) location device – ‘nuff said.

8. Constant Gardener – Houseplant looking a little peaked?  Now I can give it a quick little nutrient filled squirt.

7.  Mini Fire Extinguisher – I no longer fear small kitchen fires.  On the downside, if I ever use it I may never be able to eat anything flambé for the rest of my life.

6. Lady Impresser – I may get back into the bar scene.  I once again have an impressive ‘package’ under my pants, its just a bit farther south and has to be drained once per hour.

5.  Diet Device – If my belly and butt suffered this much shrinkage, I’d be waving my fat pants and appearing on an infomercial in a heartbeat.

4.  Clothesline -  Been doing more laundry since I came home from the hospital.  Now I have a new place to hang my clothes to dry.

3.  Gandhi kegger – draw a refreshing glass anytime, anywhere.

2.  Speed governor – In danger of loosing your license because you’ve been getting too many pedestrian speeding tickets?  This will bring things under control.

 

And finally, my number one use:

1.  Buddhist Meditation Aide – Can’t find your navel?  It’s 8” north of the OTHER center of your universe.

 

The happiest of holidays and a glorious New Year to all of HW.



This moment, here and now, is nothing less than the totality of existence.

I can't control my life, but I can influence this moment.

PSA 1.6, 1.8, 2.0 at yearly intervals
Last PSA 2.0 or 2.4 depending upon lab
Mild DRE finding (hindsight unrelated) lead to biopsy
3/08 1st biopsy, 18 core. Pathologist 1, HPIN and ASAP, 0.5mm 1 core. Pathologist 2, carcinoma
7/08 2nd biopsy, 16 core. Pathologist 1, 1 core carcinoma. Pathologist 3, 3 cores carcinoma
Urologist retired. Referred to another Dr. in same practice, not experienced enough.
Robotic da Vinci performed 12/22/08, Univ of Washington Med Center, Dr. William Ellis. Both nerves spared, complimented on my 'wide pelvis' (my feminine side, I guess) which gave more room to operate. Now the healing begins.

Well Gerbe, I am on day 43 of catheter time, the stories I could add to your list! Yesterday, while walking up the basement steps, the longer tube on the "big" bag got snagged on the bottom step, and yanked that cath so hard that I fell down. Even this morning, I can still feel the pain in my "winky" from where the tube stretched the comotose fellow out and back again. I do your number 8 a lot at night off the front porch, keeping the gardenia fresh and full. And your number one, it's like a compas always pointing north that's for sure.

Gerbe,

This is what I like about this place.  I got a real hardy laugh from your list.  Especially #10 because it brought back such fond memories.

Happy healing,

Tim

The elastic waste band was a wee too short for my waste line so I didn't use it. Didn't use the second band to strap to my leg either....I wore shorts all day and had easy access to drain mr catheter....Had two occassions where the full cath slid down my leg and hit the floor. Luckily, both times, no one else was around cool

I am thinking about naming my big bag "wilson" like tom hanks did in castaways. Its always by my side, my wife calls it the jelly fish. Perhaps I will take a marker and make a big happy face on it, but on the other hand, it's always in a pissy mood.

Hi,
new guy here, the OP made me laugh so hard my stitches hurt!
had a Da Vinci Robotic done on 12/23/08 at UCSF  (University of California at San Francisco).  my catheter was plugged several times by blood clots, woke up in a sweat with dreadful pain and felt I was about to burst.  finally after about 2 hours the clot passed and immediatly felt better.  will have the catheter removed 2 weeks post op at a local Urologist instead of driving 2 hours to S.F. 
even worse than the catheter problems was not having a BM for 6! days!  I will never take a BM for granted again!

For all the catheter story fans, just finished day 50 with mine, the 3rd since my operation on 11/14/8. I still see the doctory Monday, and see what wonderful plan he has for me to be freed of this unwanted friend. As much as I hate it, still beats the feeling of not peeing and being blocked up completely.

Will be happy to give a fresh report after tommorow mornings visit, not exepcting a solution to happen, but be happy to have a serious game plan developed and in place. I can handle this better now than a month ago, as long as I feel the dr is on top of things with his 25 years of experience and his good reputation at hand. There has to be a logical reason and a practical solution. I hope.

Had to wear one for total urinary blockage in the beginning of finding my PCa. Two notedable experiences.

Do not drive stickshift car or truck with it on, every clutch press is memorable (macho man had to go somewhere...found out macho comes with side effect-yanks)

I hated wearing this thing so much, that prior to seeing the uro-doc after a number of days and using Flomax with good results, I decided it is leaving asap.....tried a light yank on it (that was stupid..thought about it a little while and remembered something about inflated bulb idea on the other side or such), figured scissors will take care of this, cut it through (both tubes-it is two tubes together) and it slid off all by itself into the toliet, that was great...I literally took it into my own hands...! Luckily I have never had to go back to such.

(let's hope all PCa patients get off the bag asap)

I have enjoyed these catheter stories, this is my story that was posted over a year ago.

*********

Our funny adventure -

The RRP surgery went well and I was discharged 2 days later.  Little pain until at home the second day and  I was diagnosed as having  a hemotoma in the left groin area from the surgery.  Any movement in the stomach muscles caused an intense pain like I had never felt before.  We live in a split level home and have several stair levels up to our bedroom area.  A lazy-boy chair was brought up to the bedroom so I had a place to recline other than our bed.  When ever my wife went downstairs, I had a cell phone close by to call her if i needed something. I was sitting in my recliner one evening watching TV when I moved my leg and caught the catheter bag tube in the chair foot rest mechanism. I felt the pull (you know where) and heard the tube connection seperate and knew the contents was spilling out onto the carpet.  I grabbed for one end of the tube with one hand and in undescribable pain from the hemotoma, I reached backward for the phone with my left hand.  I barely could reach it and tried to dial our home number to reach my wife downstairs.  Our area code is 913, but I must have dialed 9113 to start.  I tried again, but before I could dial, I got an incoming call.  I hung up immediately and then called my wife again.  I told her to get up here ASAP.  As she got up to the bedroom, the phone rang again and she answered.  It was our local police department asking my wife if everthing was allright as they had received a 911 call and then was hung up on.  She explained somewhat and was then told an officer would be there shortly.  My wife got the bag two ends back together and then went down to meet the police officer.  I told her he would probably want to come in and check things out and to bring him upstairs and I would try to explain things to him.  My wife was very suprised to see a female police officer get out of the patrol car.  She explained as best she could our funny 911 story, boy I was sure glad she did not want to come upstairs and see me.

Jerry,

That's a great story!

I guess I haven't seen your history before...so your PSA was down to 0.02, but then went back up, hence the need for radiation. Seems like one is never out completely out of the woods, I guess.

Jerry, quite a catheter story, even though I am approaching day 52 on mine, never had anything that spectacular happen, other then catching the big bag hose on the last step coming up from my basement. Was home alone at the time, and thought either my weiner had pulled off my body or that I pulled the cath out all the way including the balloon,but neither happened, just a lot of pain! Sure you impressed that woman cop. lol.

ok, seriously some of the cath pull stories are really freaking me out!  I am due to have my cath pulled by my local urologist this wednesday so I won't have to drive 2 hours each way to UCSF.  what should I expect on the cath pull?  once the bulb is deflated the cath tube should just about fall out?  if the doc or nurse tries to yank it out then I know something is wrong?  will I be like a firehouse squirting all over everything when the cath is first pulled?  if I don't or can't urinate with the cath pulled is that not a good sign? 
forgot to mention that when I first arrived at home after the operation my 20 lb. Jack Russell was so happy to see me he jumped on my lap as soon as I sat down.......you guessed it, right on the cath tube where it enters Mr. Winky!  yikes!

My catheter was removed normally. The nurse deflated the internal bulb, then used a syringe like a funnel to put some saline solution into my bladder. Said "take two breaths and we'll take it out on the second exhale". No problem, a 1 second squirm, no real pain. Then I stood up and peed the saline back into a jug. Need to do that to prove that you aren't plugged up.

No problem, glad to be rid of it.

You guys are bringing back some aborted memories. And some great laughs.

Gerbe,
These devices are also great for walking a shy dog. Just point and shoot where you want him to.  But be careful with the leash...

I had a friend who had a double knee operation after a skiing accident. He had to wear a catheter for obvious reasons. He told me a story that still makes me cry. While using the traction equipment to exercise the newly repaired knees, he was snagged and it yanked the catheter out ~ still inflated...He told me this story while I still had mine in...I will never forget the horror it brought me and I still make him pay...

Califlostinspace,

My experiences were pretty similar to Gerbe's. Had it taken out twice. Both nurses were great. The first one was hilarious. They had me take a deep breath, then blow out hard. While I'm blowing out, she pulls out the deflated bulb. "It's a boy!" she joked as the bulb came out. Didn't hurt, though it did feel odd. And it immediately felt good to not have it in any longer.

Did you ever have to pee out a glob of blood following a biopsy? It felt something like that.

As in Gerbe's case, they injected saline first. Then, before you leave, you have to show them that you can stop and start the peeing process. Both time I had female nurses; but it's rather routine for them.

PS Interesting name you picked, maybe you can explain it sometime? Unless it's a secret joke.
