    I worry about a false passage also. I was having a very hard time cathing last Sept/Oct and the urologist said I don't have one either. He dilated the opening but it seems to be closing again. Do you ever feel pressure in a testicle when cathing? I sometimes feel that - one of the things that made me think I had a false channel.

    In the past when I felt that it was difficult to get the catheter all of the way in, I would put in a foley and leave it in for a couple of days. It seemed to help.

    I don't use foleys so don't have one to use. However, I do think it would help to not insert caths for a few days. Seems like I've irritated something.

    If you are sitting on a roho cushion it can make it hard to install cath. Sometimes have to lift myself up with elbows just to get enough weight off you butt and then it goes right in. If you can't do that lay in bed and you should not have a problem. The longer I sit sometimes I have a harder time with a cath. Seems like things get twisted up for some reason too. Just me I guess.
