    Thanks for the ideas/suggestions, etc. everyone. I appreciate any help with this.
    I am going to have a bike repair shop put the tires on so no need for special tools or anything on my end of things...
  2. Help please with a type of replacement tire for an old Quickie 2

    Hi, I am looking for some replacement non-flat tires for some chair wheels. It's a Quickie 2 chair with 24 inch mag wheels. (The wheels are originals from 1999 in case they have changed anything...

    Thanks for the replies.



    Currently a ceiling lift isn't something that would work for me, but thanks for the suggestion, KLD. Who knows, maybe I'll have a ceiling lift in the future.
  4. Help with patient lift recommendations please

    I am trying to get a patient (Hoyer) lift to transfer, and I saw that on an old post KLD the SpinalNurse had recommended the Molift Smart 150 and the Hoyer Advance (not the Advance-E) to someone.

  5. Mitrofanoff leaking after having a Foley for 6 months

    SCI nurse,
    I have a C5/6 SCI with a neurogenic bladder and I have a Mitrofanoff stoma but I did not have a bladder augmentation surgery.

    I am currently having a problem with my bladder. I was in...
  6. Thanks for the response, Domosoyo. I had thought...

    Thanks for the response, Domosoyo. I had thought of that too, but there wasn't any mucus in the catheter when we pinched it shut and pulled it out. I think we may need to try moving the part of the...
  7. Safe residual amounts after cathing through Mitrofanoff

    I've recently had my Mitrofanoff fixed so it useable again, so I had a question about residual urine. We decided to do a little test a handful of times to make sure that we were getting all the urine...
  8. Problem with unused but open Mitrofanoff stoma

    I read through a lot of the Mitrofanoff posts but I couldn't find this exact situation, so please excuse me if this a repeat question.

    I have a C5/6 Injury and I had a Mitrofanoff procedure done...
  9. Thanks for the information, GJ. I think it always...

    Thanks for the information, GJ. I think it always helps to hear from other people who have faced the same problems (especially when the issue had a positive resolution.) I am very hopeful that I can...
  10. Ok, so I guess the acidic pH isn’t something...

    Ok, so I guess the acidic pH isn’t something important to try since I am definitely trying to decrease my symptomatic UTI’s. That is too bad, because I would eat all the ash in the world if it...
  11. I started using the Vetericyn while I was...

    I started using the Vetericyn while I was finishing taking my prescribed Ampicillin. I cleaned the outside of my urethra and Mitrofanoff stoma, I rinsed the inside of my urethra and the inside of...
  12. Questions about Dr. Young's post on recurrent urinary tract infections

    After reading through many posts in the Care forum and trying a few things to stop my current never ending UTI's since my Mitrofanoff surgery, I came across a post written by Dr. Young. I was...
  13. I'm looking up Vetericyn VF to find a supplier...

    I'm looking up Vetericyn VF to find a supplier right now. I had one more question. For those of you that use the gel, is it just called Vetericyn Hydrogel? And is it still in a white bottle, or is...
  14. Thanks, Donno. I’ll be sure to keep track of...

    Thanks, Donno. I’ll be sure to keep track of my response to it, and I’ll try to tone it down with sterile saline or scale back to the regular version if I can’t tolerate the VF.

    Thanks! ...
  15. Thanks for the ingredient information, GJ. It...

    Thanks for the ingredient information, GJ. It sure looks like they are basically the same except perhaps the exact amounts of each ingredient. I thought the syringes weren’t sterile so I figured...
  16. Thanks for your reply and information,...

    Thanks for your reply and information, ex-Gooserider. I am kind of nervous about trying this since there are really no exact directions and it seems to work differently for every person, plus the...
  17. Thanks, crypticgimp. I am going to get some...

    Thanks, crypticgimp. I am going to get some Microcyn/Vetericyn and see if that can help me get past this cycle of infections. I really hope that the Mitrofanoff has nothing to do with them, because...
  18. I'm finally going to jump in and order some...

    I'm finally going to jump in and order some Microcyn or Vetericyn. Is everyone just using the Vetericyn (rather than the Microcyn) and are the ingredients in both products exactly the same? We are...
  19. I hope you get better soon. I had a double...

    I hope you get better soon. I had a double infection back in October and I hated taking two antibiotics at once.

    I am assuming I’m emptying all the way since I’m cathing like I always have...
  20. The amount of infections would vary (especially...

    The amount of infections would vary (especially if I travelled) but I would say I was having 3/4 or less a year. (sometimes I went for 10 months UTI free)

    I have communicated with the surgeons...
  21. Thanks for the help, Bobby. :)

    Thanks for the help, Bobby. :)
  22. Crypticgimp, I'm so sorry to hear that you can't...

    Crypticgimp, I'm so sorry to hear that you can't wash your hands properly in the restroom on campus. That is a horrible reason to get sick with a UTI!

    Thank you for the tip on washing the stoma...
  23. No, I was not having a lot of infections before...

    No, I was not having a lot of infections before the Mitrofanoff surgery. I had a couple/few per year before the surgery, but since the surgery they have been continuous even with proper cathing...
  24. They told me about the appendix containing...

    They told me about the appendix containing bacteria only after the surgery. I make sure to only take a specimen in if I have multiple UTI symptoms (fever, AD, fatigue, spasticity, urgency, pain,...
  25. Thanks for your input, crypticgimp. :) I...

    Thanks for your input, crypticgimp. :) I appreciate your help and experience and if it is ok I'll PM you about the way you've found Vetericyn works with your Mitrofanoff.

    I realized that I forgot...
