    good place to buy caths?

    Hi guys,

    I know I haven't been here in forever due to school, but I could use some help. My new urologist wants me to start using hydrophilic caths to see if we can stop the never ending UTI's I've had ever since I was paralyzed 17 years ago.

    I'm a t9/t10 para who is not home very often so I need something easy to carry and use in a hurry. Any suggestions for what to use and a good place to buy them out of pocket? I'm kinda looking at Lofric primo. Is that a good one? I tried the speedicath compact a while back and I wasn't all that impressed with them.

    Thanks!!

    I use the Coloplast SureCath hydrophyllic when I'm out and about. It's a bag cath with a little water container inside, just twist the cap off it and it lubes the cath, then rip the top off the bag to expose the cath. Ready to go in a few seconds and super slippery.

    oh, didn't notice out of pocket, these are kinda expensive. But the single Coloplast "SelfCath Plus" hydro's are a good bet too. So far, the best OOP prices I've seen, and use, is this place:

    The owner posts on CC too, can't think of his handle at the moment.

    Thanks McDuff!

    I saw these and might be able to get by paying out of pocket.

    I travel a lot and the best catheter I have found is Pocket packs by MTG. I obtain all my supplies from Steve at summit express. I have never had one leak, there small compact and come with everything. Less than half the size of a regular catheter pack. His number is 888-269-6605. Email SummitExpressMedical@yahoo.com. I have been with them for the last few years and there great! No hassles, no insurance problems and they work with you.
    Best Regards,

    Hello,

    Sorry for the long delay but ....Thanks for the replies! I've been having internet problems and exams at school to take.

    I'll give these suppliers a call sometime in the near future.
