    With an ID catheter I use saline and a piston type flush kit to flush each night. If you feel and infection coming on try dissolving an antibiotic tablet in a large bottle of saline then fill your bladder with the solution and clamp it off for a few minutes then flush again with pure saline.

    Hope it helps and as suggested drink, drink, drink lot's of water!!!

    I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past, so one way to get the most out of life is to look at it as an adventure.

    For excessive clogging or encrustation of an indwelling catheter you can try a combination of acidifying your urine (vitamin C 1000 mg. daily) and doing a daily Renecidin instillation (not an irrigation). Talk to your urologist about this.

    It would also be important to be sure you do not have stones in your bladder. Have you had recent tests for this?
