    Hi Mona, no, I dont use any catheter (supra or intermitent). I use Dermacyn to clean the area around the urethra after I go to the loo.

    Oh okay I understand.

    Would it be good to use around my suprapubic stoma too?
    Like for daily cleaning?

    mona, did you have a foley before you had a suprapubic? did they close the urethral opening when they put the suprapubic?

    thank you!

    I dont see why not. It is exactly like water, but it kills even MRSA.

    Found these on a related web site:

    • Drink plenty of liquids, especially water. Cranberry juice may have infection-fighting properties.
    • Urinate frequently, and avoid retaining your urine for a long time after you feel the urge to void.
    • Wipe from front to back after a bowel movement to prevent bacteria in the anal region from spreading to the vagina and urethra.
    • Take showers rather than bubble baths.
    • Wash the skin around the vagina and anus daily.
    • Empty your bladder as soon as possible after intercourse, and drink a full glass of water to help flush bacteria.
    • Avoid using deodorant sprays or feminine products such as douches in the genital area that could irritate the urethra.
    • Wear cotton underwear
    • If you are sexually active, make sure you wash your genital area and urinate after intercourse. This will help to remove any bacteria that could travel up the urethra.

    I have a recurring UTI and a fellow gimp told me that he had a problem with not being able to empty out his bladder completely. He had a urodynamics done and he found out that when he cathed he would not empty out completely so there would always be some urine in the bladder.

    I self cath and I had a urodynamics done in the hospital about a year ago. I read the report and I don't know what it is suppose to say if that is what is wrong with me. I think I might have the same problem. Right before I begin my bowel (dig stim) I cath and then I start digging. I found that when I am leaning over to do the stim as soon as I sit up straight I shoot out pee, even after I had just cathed.

    Anyone have the same condition?

    Do you always Crede well before removing the catheter? This will help to get the last drops out, and is the only time we recommend using the Crede manuever anymore.
