    I'm wearing one now (certainly not for fun!) and hopefully getting it out tomorrow!

    I had obstruction in my urinary tube and laser surgery done so my "Mr. Happy" (that's what my doctor called it!) has the tube sticking out with a plug for letting the urine and blood out periodically.

    I was "under" when it was inserted so I don't know just how it is done but I assume there is some pain when it is removed?

    After this I wonder how some enjoy sticking things up their pee-hole. :eek:

    there is a slight amount of discomfort. Nothing to worry about. I think some of these doctors enjoy sticking things up someones dong. If you don't mind my asking what did you have surgery on.

    Obstruction coming from my bladder through my urinary tube. Sometimes when I had to pee, it was all I could do to make it in time. Hopefully this will take care of that problem. Last month my urologist did a cystoscope - running a small camera up through my pee-hole. Hurt like hell! Needless to say I did not request a DVD copy. LOL

    As for "sounding", I'm not sure what that is. Sorry.

    I've inserted a number of catheters in guys and I can assure you I don't get any thrill out of hurting someone--because I know it hurts. As far as what to expect when it comes out, it should be almost painless. You'll enjoy the relief of it no longer being there. Good luck; I hope it helped with your condition.

    I wore one for three days. The insurtion was not that bad since they used lots of lube but when it was time for removal, no lube left. I wanted to jump up to the ceiling. It was a bit painfull peeing the next few day.

    I was in the hospital for a long time and had to cath just about everyday had many operations. once i could stand up they would have me stand up in front of the nurse and just more or less jerk it straight down and out. wasn't too bad most of the time but had one sadistic fat bitch that just loved to jerk the crap out of it i think she was jealous. was always under when they inserted thank goodness. now that thing they stuck up my ass..........

    (For HungBoyRN):

    ...Just wondering. As a RN, can you tell us whether "more endowed" guys have particular challenges with catheters? Are longer flaccid sizes a problem? Are there (in fact) several different "sizes" of catheters to choose from for different size men? What about (patient) arousals occuring when the catheter is being inserted?

    I had to have one put in for a surgery about 12 years ago. I was hopped up on pain killers but still awake when they put it in. Everybody thinks it's the insertion into the hole that's going to hurt, but that's nothing. It's that damned tube scraping against your insides as they snake it in that's so uncomfortable.

    Thankfully, I was still out when they removed it. Once I was fully "with it" again after the surgery, they said I had to pee before they'd let me go home, and if I didn't, they might have to do another catheter. Neither before nor since have I drank so much water so quickly as after they told me that.

    Yeap, experienced it once; I was on a self pump morphine drip at the time. The nurse told me to go ahead and give myself a few morphine shots before she started. I kind of think that was funny looking back at it. I just had this major surgery that left me in the ICU with a self controlled morphine drip and the pain from a cath was on her mind. I did my normal two pumps more so to get back to sleep as soon as possible since she woke me up to tell me I needed to pee. Even under all the morphine I was taking I still felt a little something, it was more of a burning sensation than anything else. I enjoy pain, call me a freak if you must, and I must say I think this would hurt quite a bit under normal circumstances.

    Size--flaccid or otherwise--doesn't affect catheter placement. There are different sizes available, but this refers to circumference, not length. I can't imagine a patient becoming aroused during the insertion, but if it happened the procedure should be aborted, or so I'm told.

    Thanks so much for your response! :smile:

    At sometime or another, with my being in the admin. "branch" of health care, I had heard there were different size catheters used. I suppose I correctly figured all along that it had to do with "circumference factors".

    ('Never had the courage to ask my colleagues around the office, though! ) -- Heh :biggrin1:

    I think HungBoyRN and I enjoy the same profession. Whenever I have to insert an IDC (in-dwelling catheter) I use a gel with an anaesthetic in it so it numbs your pee-hole and reduces the discomfort. Coming out it shouldn't hurt much at all, might get the feeling that you are having a massive pee.
    Benderten2001, older men usually have enlarged prostates which makes it harder to insert catherers and can result in some bleeding. Also, just a personal observation, the "larger" dudes tend to be more prone to prostate issues. I think it's something to do with testosterone levels.

    LessThanBig, we use the lidocaine gel where I work too, but I always wonder how effective it really is. When I introduce it into the urethra, I swear almost all of it comes right back out immediately. Also, seems to me that unless we let it dwell in there for awhile before inserting the cath, which we never do, it's really not having much of a numbing effect. But it probably has a placebo effect which is fine and harmless.

    Since the catheter was removed two days ago, I have had two "wetting" accidents where I couldn't get to the bathroom intime. I hope this is just temporary.

    That was my main problem before I had the surgery!

    This kind of LPSG dialogue reminds me of how the forum was years ago, when it began. We can still have threads which prove interesting and informative! :smile:

    Obviously, from my questions and comments earlier, I haven't had the experience of having a catheter (yet) and certainly dread the notion of one! My own perception of catheters is jaded a bit anyway, from "the past". What I've read and ...what I've heard!

    My late grandfather for example. He actually managed to pull his catheter completely out, all by himself, one night in the hospital years ago, much to the amazement of his doctor and nurses! Oh, he "fiddled with it" for hours. I recall he was just about out of his mind with pain at the time anyway, from still other health issues. The catheter was used as he was beginning to be treated for (then) a suspected prostate problem. NO cancer, but his prostate was removed during that hospital stay.

    The (suspected) correlation with "larger dudes having more instances of prostate issues" (by LessThanBig) was an interesting observation.
    Thanks for that. :smile:

    I'm sure I speak for several of us around here....just how much "talk" goes on about "the sizes" you health care professionals observe? I have a friend in health care who confides (?) that although professional behavior is tantamount in health care centers, one can't help but (ahem) "notice".
    No names given me, of course, but this friend had SEVRAL interesting "tales" . Apparently,there IS some inner-office chatter......sometimes. :rolleyes:

    Surprisingly little is actually said about these things unless it's relevant to their care actually (Just recently I had a patient with massive odema in his penis and it was hugem funnily enough, the next day his scrotum was massively swollen too and his cock all but disappeared). Probably the only time I've ever heard a colleague complain about the size of a dudes penis was when she needed to catheterise him and she wasn't too sure on how to dig it out of his abdomen to find his urethra. Certainly we all notice these things in one way or another, but it is hardly ever mentioned outside the room.

    I had one for a week after surgery when I was around twenty. Getting an involuntary erection hurt like hell. Even looking at the tubes (I had three at one point, I think to my bladder and kidneys) coming out of my cock made me feel woozy. One night the nurse said she'd remove it in the morning, so I got no sleep that night. They inflate something inside you so it doesn't come out, so DO NOT tug on it at all. Removing it was no fun, fairly quick, but weird pressure and sensations. The first time I jacked off a bit of blood came out, then the usual flood of semen. I think my erections were sore for a few weeks, then everything was back to normal.

    I had a catheter in 3 years ago for 24 hrs after an accident. Since then I noticed that my ejaculations have become less strong (in particular, after edging for about 30 min I was shooting at least up to my head). Now the feeling is exactly the same but I mostly get one big shot that comes out maybe 10 centimetes. Should I be worried? Any suggestions?

    Had one inserted as part of a diagnostic procedure a few years ago. It hurt like hell! I moaned and complained. I know that they heard me in the reception room because when I left I got stares. Had nightmares for months afterward.
