    need some closed system intermittent catheters asap

    i just had surgery to put a stoma in my belly button to cath out of. i have been using non closed system but i cant do it myself. they are currently messing with insurance to get me the closed system but its taking a while. i tried out a few samples and can get the closed system to work on my own because i can put both hands on the cath and let the bag hang. i only have a few from samples and really need them asap. i can pay some and will cover shipping. send me a pm or email jennybanta1990@gmail.com

    thank you

    coloplast is good about sending samples, and you could have your friends request samples as well... I had a couple close friends do so for me because I've been unable to find a source that takes medicaid and has speedicath compact, and I haven't found another cath that works as well and doesn't cause problems. My friends just used their own names, addresses, emails, but requested my cath size.

    correct i have had friends do the same as Lin does. There is coloplast, bard, hollister... google closed cath systems and call the manufacturer and ask for samples.
