    Portable Toilet Seat Pads

    I carry about two folded over foam yoga mat pieces I attached some velcro strips to right now whenever I'm outside, to attach to toilet seats in an attempt to make them a LITTLE softer on my bum....

    Thanks for the recs gjnl! Dr Comiter was actually my urologist before I switched to Dr Suskind, partly because of distance, and partly because his practice didn't really follow best practices (i.e....

    When you say urology studies, do you mean the ultrasound, blood tests, and KUB that CWO recommended above, or would you two include urodynamics as well? (Or is that more a once every few years kind...

    I'm not sure if we got the voiding pressure (though I do remember them asking me to crede a few times). Asked them for the results and this is what I got, but it doesn't sound like any of these,...

    Bladder botox pros/cons/necessity?

    I know there've been a bunch of posts on this topic before, but I didn't see anything at a glance related to my specific situation: my urologist isn't recommending botox to me for bladder control,...

    Where are folks buying this these days? King used to be the cheapest, but now they restricted sales to those in the industry, and everywhere else is selling this for significantly more.

    I just saw my PCP about this, and she said that the darker brown patches do look just like some hyperpigmentation from the constant contact and friction (I do tend to prefer my right side when...

    On second check, I can't tell if this is mushy, or just fat, but I'm definitely a little more worried now. What's the general approach to handling recovery from DTI? I know bed rest is a huge part,...

    Thanks CKF! When you say better, do you mean relative to how it was when I posted, or all better / no longer red? As of yesterday and this morning at least, the top layer/scab has stayed on, and the...

    Thanks! I actually saw you mention this in a few places on previous threads: do you do this while it's still in the pimple stage? Has that helped it go down?

    Nah, popped while I was sitting on the toilet: it's right where the back portion of my hip (when sitting) would be more or less right on top of it.

    I actually have a padded toilet seat at home,...

    It was warmer when it was a pimple, but now I'd say it's about the same temperature - at least not noticeably different. The area itself is a bit firmer, but the surrounding area is the same softness...

    Popped pimple wound or pressure ulcer?

    Every now and then I get blackheads, pimples, cysts, etc on my butt (usually the left cheek, which I think also gets a bit more pressure than my right cheek). The pimples/cysts are generally a little...

    I remember reading that indwelling was much higher risk than IC, but the general mechanism was one of bladder irritation, be it from the catheter itself, or the bacteria. But, I could also be wrong...

    I have no doubt that I'll like it, but that's good to know! I going to try and see if I can get insurance to cover part of it, so fingers crossed on that.



    Yeah, that's what everyone seems to...

    That's exactly what I've always thought too, until this particular fall. I'd say I average 1-2 falls a year maybe, and maybe one close call every month. I have a tendency to speed around, but I'm...

    Actually, I was thinking of only wearing the seat belt while I'm mobile, so I suspect it wouldn't be too much of an issue for weight shifting. And yeah, I figured that the wheelchair flipping with me...
  19. Seat belt recommendations for a ZRA? (Also, pros and cons of having one?)

    I've gone belt-less for the past, oh, 15 years now? But after the recent fiasco where I fractured my tibia after hitting a bump in the sidewalk and slipping right out of my chair, I can't help but...

    I appreciate the feedback! I've definitely heard mixed opinions about this stuff: some sources have said to treat above a certain amount, and others say to never bother unless you have symptoms, so I...

    Oh, maybe I've misunderstood this entire time: I thought that even if you were only colonized, a UA and C&S would still show positive. Is that not the case?



    Right, that's how I understood it...

    But again here, when you say "to know if you have a UTI": if the UA and C&S come back positive, but you're still asymptomatic, does that qualify as having one? This is where much of my confusion...

    Did some history get lost as a result of this? I'm noticing that the Care subforum no longer has anything after the first page.
  25. Edema w/ elevated D-Dimer. SCI-Nurses, Dr Wise, how thoroughly checked should I be?

    I started this thread a few days back about the edema I started noticing after I returned my feet back to a resting position, and decided to go get checked out just in case, for my peace of mind.
