    It Works!!

    The mitrofanoff I had 3 weeks ago works! I just did my first independent cath from my chair! YAY!! It will all be worth it if I can just get my bowels back to normal.

    I know it must feel great!

    What are the best brands of the all-in-one caths? And how often do you all cath? I have bladder sensation but I've been getting the urge like every 2 hours but only cathing 100ml.
