    Unhappy Freedom Clear LS

    Hi. I'm a C6-7 quad who has been using these catheters for about as long as I can remember. And up until a few weeks ago they worked great and i never used skin prep. Then they started blowing. They didn't stay on my skin. I started using skin prep and now they are barely staying on. If I "kick off" too much they blow. My confidence is gone. Has anyone else had problems with the Freedom Clear LS recently? Any recommendations on another good catheter? Thanks in advance.

    You might try a "Posey strap" that wraps around and is velcroed on. Good Luck!

    I used Freedoms for a long time then started having trouble with them. I switched to Rochester Wide Band about 10 years ago and have been very satisfied.

    I used Freedom clears 16 years ago when I first got injured and had problems with it doing a "seal-a-meal" in the heat and then would have a blow out. I switched to Freedom Cath a year later and never have problems now. They do require skin prep though.
