Thread: Cathing 20,000 times this decade

1. Cathing 20,000 times this decade

I just did the math. At 5 to 6 times of intermittent cathing a day, that will be:

2000 times this year
20,000 times this decade
If I live to 80ish
60,000 times
Those are some big numbers. I'm trying to imagine a room with 60,000 catheters.... Mind boggling .....

2. That's indeed a huge number and a curious though. Let's see... The average catheters i've seen here in spain are 35cm long (13'7 inches). Adding them up you already used about 7000m of catheters which is roughly 140 olympic-size swimming pools. That's like 4000 people stacked up on above the other.
You'll have done a half "marathon of catheters" (21 km) by the time you reach 60000. And that's 2 times and almost a half of Everest mountain.

Counting every cath bundle, you already covered almost 500 square meters (5382 square feet) of surface. You could wrap up more than 80 packages (1 feet each side side). And when you reach 60000 caths you will be able to wrap up a 10meter diamater sphere... lol it's too late for me already.

3. I cath around 7-8 times a day and my doctor was like...we need to work on that. You shouldn't be peeing that much. I was going to drop kick her.

4. and I thought I was bored tonite...

5. So.....how many gloves and how many months spent sitting with a finger firmly inserted????

6. that is a lot of trash.

Imagine if you cold not cath, -you would become a ballon of 17 000 litres weighing over 20 metric tonnes.

8. min 1,5 l x 365 x 30 + slag

9. Gee, Jon, with those numbers, you're giving teenage boys a run for their money -- I guess they're not the only guys who lube up their dicks 2000 times a year!

10. I am absolutely disgusted that nothing better has come along for bladder management ... am I'm in my 25th year here ... started out IC, then went to crede/valsalva ... foley since August 2009.
