    I think you're right, I now recall that like the top 1/3 of the bed was an air mattress, and only from my waist down was on the "sand" bed portion. My butt cuts seemed big to me :) but maybe not by...

    KLD,

    Any idea how long an infection has been active, to get to the peeing real blood stage? I had the foley in for just under 5 days, just wondering if maybe I had something brewing beforehand.

    48,

    I've got a tight sphincter which makes for a lot of pressure, I've shot pee like 2ft up and out, on the rare times I happen to "miss" my timing by mere seconds doing an intermittent cath. From...

    I used 15, not 30, that's why I thought I was being conservative. I did put the 15 back in after I removed it just to see, it was pretty big. It seemed to be a bit lopsided, one side was bigger than...

    Aww crap, looks like operator error. I looked up the details on this foley, it says it is a 5cc balloon. Not sure why the insertion kit comes with a syringe with 30cc of solution pre-filled. I...

    If it's this thing, the 4th picture down on the left, shows how you position it between bed and chair. Not real sure I see the benefit of this thing, a non-level xfer might be a pain.

    I switched from Roho 4" to a Ride Design Java cushion. It is essentially a "hemorrhoid donut", there is a hole under your isch's and the surrounding area bears the support weight. Been working for...
