    Hello Crags,
    I suffer from what I would call severe retraction as well. I am new to the whole condom catheter and what do you mean by the foam strap and velcro? The ones I have are from coloplast/coveen and they are pre-sticky? I have several samples and they keep falling off...help!!!!

    Hi Crags,
    I read your post about using the intermittent compression sleeves on your legs. I have recently posted questions about this but got a negative response from KLD. I still want to know about the possibilities of this product. I do have edema in right knee (just found out from MRI) but also interested to know if this equipment does what it says it does: warms up muscles, helps circulation, etc. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
